    After 47... Ke7, 48. Qc7+ looks rather dangerous.

    A single move can determine the fate of a game such as the one below after 11.Bxd5

     


    Black played 11....exd5. Correct was 11....cxd5

    The reason why 11...cxd5 was correct and 11...exd5 incorrect is because of the following:

    (a) White played 0-0-0

    (b) the direction of the pawn chain points to the area where Black is to focus his attention on.

    With 11....exd5, the direction of the pawn chain is towards the King's wing which is not the area that Black should focus on because White's King is on the other side.

    With 11....cxd5 the direction of the pawn chain is towards the Queen's wing which is the correct area for Black to focus on because that's where White's K is.

    In a game where opposite castling has occurred, the winner is the one who gets at the opposing King first.

    So, with 11...cxd5, Black gets to operate on the c-file with the Rs.

    And a technique in defending against an attack with pawns is not to move the f, g, and h pawns unless compelled to do so.
