Pawn Structure (Weak Pawns)
[Doubled Pawns]


Weak Pawns
- Doubled Pawns -

A Doubled Pawn formation occurs when two Pawns, from the same side, line up on the same File.

For the most part, having Doubled Pawns is a problem, as they're not able to provide protection for one another and both Pawns become vulnerable to being captured.

However, as you'll see in the video, there is a specific situtation when having Doubled Pawns can be useful ...

It's usually when the rearward Pawn, in the Doubled formation, can reclaim territory in the Small Center.
