makes so much sense, that IM made it look so easy.
thanks! makes total sense now.
The threat of attacking d5 is not that you can instantly take the pawn, but that black cannot defend b7 with a move like Qc7 or Qb6 (Qd7 is ofcourse not possible).
The only other way to defend b7 is Bc8 or indeed b6 which are both not that great moves to play.
nice game !!
ive seen this game (or very similar) from you before. although d5 is attacked after Qb3, there is no real threat of capture there (attacked twice, defended twice), so I dont see why it's so strong. could you explain?
and about the 6... b6, which is a mistake, what could one do instead?
i like your articles. its short and useful
