Hopefully, playing through these games will convince you to think about doubled and tripled pawns in a new light. I have included full scores of these games and annotated many in their entirety so that you will actually see and understand how these formations formed.Unlike many other inexpensive chess e-books, these are fully annotated in understandable, simple language. The profuse use of diagrams make these among the first chess books that you can read WITHOUT A BOARD at your side.Jon Edwards won the 10th United States Correspondence Championship in 1997 and the 8th North American Invitational Correspondence Chess Championship in 1999.
