You can use many of the qualities that make a passed pawn so powerful in the endgame in chess middlegames. They can form the backbone of your winning chess strategy.

Knowing how to use the passed pawn can help you decide what openings to play. When you know how to make the most of your passed pawn, you can look for openings where there is the potential to create a passed pawn in the middlegame.

The more advanced a passed is, the more dangerous it becomes!

Passed pawns are extremely helpful in chess middlegames because:

-They tie down the blockading piece.
-The player with a passed pawn can create space behind it to regroup and mobilize his pieces.
-The passed pawn becomes especially dangerous when they reach the sixth rank because they attack squares on the seventh.

Do not try to hang onto the pawn at all costs, but be ready to sacrifice it for other positional advantages.
