As an aspiring positional player, the moves shown and the reasons behind them were quite beautiful. Once the Bishop was locked up, the white player and his army were in handcuffs. Thanks, GM Bojkov. Your analysis was clear, quick and very instructive. Blitz game? I'd like to play like that with regular time controls.
A small correction. Actually this game was rapid, not blitz. 15 min. plus 10 sec. per side. So yes there was time to develop a plan. Thanks G.M. Bojkov for the video lesson. I'm glad that others enjoyed it. Greetings.
Wow! a blitz game? I can't imagine people of that capability.
Very entertaining and instructive, GM Bojkov.
Yes a classic little gem, thank you for showing it.
hard to believe that so many thoughtful moves and ideas came out of this blitz game! well done. bravo.
It's always nice having members who produce such good games
Great game. "The rest is silence." - Hamlet's famous last words ...
by GM Dejan Bojkov
In today's Member Analysis video, GM Bojkov highlights an extremely interesting example of a "jailed piece"! When white misplays the critical moment and allows his own bishop to get trapped behind a seriously dysfunctional pawn structure (tripled pawns), black must show good technique to keep the piece "out of the action" and convert an otherwise equal ending. Enjoy member Sangralo's impressive play!
