    After eliminating Black's dark colored Bishop just a few moves ago, White is looking towards the Endgame, where his Knight posted on c5 or d4 will dominate Black's Bishop. While White is targeting Black's weakened Q-side, Black begins his Counterattack against the White King. The assault must begin immediately, because its success is based on two temporary factors--the control of the open e-file and White Knight being far from the K-side. White was forced to cancel his attack on the Q-side and focus on defense. Black managed to convert his temporary advantages into a nice material gain and won on move 37.
