Excellent example of how to attack with an IQP!Thanks
What an Amazing game! Thank you for sharing! :)
The video highlights the attacking possibilities of the position. I didn't see half of them and plan to re-watch the video. Thanks.
As a 1400s trying to ingrain basic patterns into my skull, I appreciate your taking time to flip through the attacking lines with actual moves to the completion. It helps me "see". Even the simple ones.
I enjoy your videos. Thank you.
i loved seeing all those sac's at h7 with the bishop..... amazing
great video as always,thank you!
2nd time I've watched this video it's amazing how the victory is completely forced, no wonder D.Bojkov is a Grandmaster!!
Dejan had pointed out that 12.a3 was played to prevent the idea of Nb4-d5. But I'm wondering if black could have played 11...Ncb4 with the idea of Nf6 and then Nbd5, obtaining what 12.a3 was meant to prevent?
5 Stars! A great attack, in an instructive IQP position. A fantastic game that would make anyone proud!
Very nice video. Clearly explained, and a good example of using the space around the IQP for a devastating attack. Thanks!
nice, thanks !
Nice video. Thanks
Many interesting ideas. B-d3, a second move of the white squared bishop in the opening, before completing back row development was instructive.
Overall very clearly explained. Thanks again.

"Wowzer", "bam" and "kapow" might be some of the phases you'll find yourself saying after watching the awesome tactics that take place in this video! GM Bojkov instructs beautifully on the power of attacking the enemy king in Isolated Queen Pawn positions! After gaining but just a couple tempos in the opening, white's initiative becomes unstoppable even against good defense from his opponent. Enjoy!
