    Thanks GM Kaidanov  for a very instructive lesson! I tend to get overly mechanical (in all phases of the game) and a few of the things this lesson taught me was to not always contest open files automatically and not always play moves like Bxb6 automatically which would have given Black doubled b-pawns but opened up the a-file for his QR.

    I see where the "boa constrictor" term comes in to describe positional players now :D Thanks!

    Great illustration of the point - Going to the end-game does not mean trading pieces at first available opportunity, but trade iff the trade is good or not bad. Profound !

    If 1...Bf8 2.Ra8+ Kb7 (2...Kd7 Rd1+ followed by rook exchanges and capturing the e-pawn with the knight) 3.Rd8 Rd8 4.Ne5 wins the pawn.

    @Thomas : doesn't it still lose a pawn to the tactic mentioned on the previous move (ie. Ra8+, Rxd8 and Nxe5) ?

    Very nice endgame. I am wondering though if Black could not have put up better resistance with ...Bf8 after White played Ra7. The move played in the game ...Bf6 clearly buried that bishop for good. If that bishop comes to c5, Black might have a chance to defend that endgame.
