    Very instructive, and out of all the videos I have seen in a long time, Anand's ...Bc4! move following the exchange of the LSB's was literally one I was failing to understand the logic behind it until you explained it. I would never have found that move, or played it, neat stuff Cool

    Thank you GM Kaidanov ... really felt like I learned a thing or two from your last couple of videos ... well thought out and explained ... in your last example I did indeed see blacks idea of opening the H-file and also Bc4 with the idea of if bxb pxb black has in reserve d5 hitting the weak a3 pawn with his bishop but did not notice kd7 ke6 idea and hitting the weak e4 and g4 pawns ... that was indeed deep deep stuff ... thank you once again sir.

    Just wondering, if B*Bf3 instead of g*Bf3, doesn't white still have a clear advantage on the queenside? Say,

    1. B*Bf3, B*d4
    2. Rf7, B*Be3?
    3. R*Qa7, B*Qc1
    4. R*Nd7,...
    The idea is with the light squre bishop white should be fine in creating and retaining the a file passed pawn.

    Very instructive training and examples GM Kaidanov. I enjoyed all the games and teaching points you made. That final example seeing how the "ugly exchange" resulted in advanced connected passed pawns in the center (that ultimately proved decisive) is a great way to drive the point home. Thanks for another great lesson.
