    Yes, it is a good piece, but not necessary on c2 Cool -it is passive there.

    Thank you GM Bojkov. At 1:54 why does white permit her light square bishop to be exchanged? Why not move it to c2?  | thought the light squared bishop was supposed to be a good thing for the white player?

    My head hurt following all the possibilities, but it's inspiring to see what's possible for better players.

    at the end at the final trapping of the rook could'nt white just play f3 as well??it looks like a stronger move

    I find this example of trapping the rook a little misleading, it happened to work in this game, but overall I think a player may be likely to play a bunch of weaking moves chasing a piece around only to find that it doesn't quite work in the end. Better to build a better position slowly.

    I didn't learn anything from this. Nothing. Honestly, I don't know that good what this is about, and by what I think it is, which is trapping a rook, I don't think this example makes any sense. If you do another one, add writing to make more sense.

    I liked you comment elindauer, thanks! You canot always have model games though in the reality things are more complicated than a handful of repeated samples, sorry about that.

      Cheers!

    I didn't get much out of this.  The tactics feel very specific to the situation, I didn't see a general theme to take away.  I think you could have found a better  example of "excluding a piece from the game" that would demonstrate the theme while also having a little more practical value.

     

    Just my 2 cents.  Still a huge GM bojkov fan.

    Black is piling the heavy pieces along the b file and takes back either the b4 or the b2 pawn (or maybe even both)

    Around 5:30 I don't understand why white didn't just take the pawn on b5.
