The hanging pawn center, Act 1

Recently I came up on the losing end of two games, once on each side of a hanging pawn duo.   With a little help from Euwe and Kramer's volumes on the middlegame, I'll try to break down some rules for playing either side of the hanging pawns, and we can see how these ideas were used correctly and incorrectly in these games.  Coming up tomorrow, Kernighan-Mangion from the recent Irving Ellner memorial.   

P.S. Thanks to all who have been donating to the Kenilworth Club library, it's getting pretty respectable, lots of high quality books.  We've almost filled one mind-bending shelf of chess knowledge.
