The most stable set of tripled e-pawns ever?
I was browsing through some of my older games (keeping a database of your own games is both fun and instructive!)….well anyway. I looked at one game from 2005 in the Reykjavik Chess Club Championship. One position caught my eye and got me thinking.
This is the furthest advanced pair of tripled pawns that I’ve seen on a central file ever.
I went to Chessbase Megabase and searched for position with both these pawns and e4/e5/e6 and ordered the search to mirror vertically and horizontally (meaning she would check same position for black colors reversed and on the d-file).
Now…the search gave me a lot of games. But most of them had the tripled pawn immediately eliminated on the next turn or the turn after that.
