    A great insight to the dark squares! I hope we see a light square strategy as I like playing on the light squares as black via the queenside fianchetto  Cool

    Thanks for this instructive game. I play the same strategy but sometimes cannot follow up in the middlegame. This game helps me to plan my middlegame better. I was afraid of the long diagonal of White but now I know how to play. Thanks a lot.

    At 9:15 would it make more sense to play Na6 instead of Nbd7? With this move you can prevent the b4 move one extra time and allow your light-squared bishop to retreat along the h3-c8 diaganol if h3 so it can maintain more control on the f5 square. Or is it better to want to exchange the light-squared bishops?

    Nice video, but I am not convinced.

    As usual in the opening advocacy genre, I knew this would be a win for black, and as I watched the game progress, I figured out long before the end that White would lose because he was allowing the c5 square for the Black knight.

    My feeling is that he HAD to play b4 immediately after Nd7, and not allow the c5 square - by the way it is incorrect to call it an "outpost", an outpost is not a square from which a piece can be chased out by a pawn, let alone a square that can be defended in advance by this pawn !

    But the knight got into c5, and when b4 came, it jumped into e4.

    I don't want to deny Black's merit, only to point out White's mistake : lack of prohyplaxy.

    And indeed, the Nh5 combined with Kf7, nullifying White's counterplay on the diagonal that he was so obviously and crudely counting on, was a beautiful concept.

    Good job :)
