An excellent game played over the weekend in the Russian Higher League. Black had a slight initiative for most of the game but was unable to break white's pawn structure. As pieces came off the board, would it matter? ... I think the answer is yes. White played very well.
I've thrown in a few notes in an effort to explain the winning procedure white used in this game. Keep in mind, though, that this game interested me so much because I am often unable to convert positions where all I have is a little extra space.
