What’s In a Name?

Chess-Passed-Pawn.jpgAccording to Wikipedia, a passed pawn in chess is a pawn with no opposing pawns to prevent it from advancing to the eighth rank.  Passed pawns can be an advantage because only the opponent’s pieces can prevent them from promoting.

A pawn is usually the weakest piece on the board; however, when it becomes a passed pawn, it gets a clear path to get promoted to a Queen and often becomes a game-changer.  It provides its owner with an uncommon upside.

At Passed Pawn Capital, our strategies are designed to provide that uncommon upside.
