Pushing g-Pawns in 1929 : Price vs Menchik

May 28, 2010, 5:32 PM 0

The game you are about to see features a plan by White to raid the Kingside in a King's Indian.  Contemporary theory holds that White does best to seek opportunities on the Queenside, and that plan is quite effective against unprepared opposition.

This line, however, is something that I highly recommend to take up against overbooked Juniors.  As you will see, Black's defensive tasks are considerable.  Vera Menchik won this game because she was a patient defender posessing fine technique.  If you read the annotations and study the notes, especially up to move 25, you will surely agree that White's plan packs some real punch.
