Queen's Indian Defense: When the Cat catches the Mouse

Jan 5, 2011, 12:21 PM |

Often, a Queen's Indian Defense will lead to a middle game that features maneuvering about a set of hanging Pawns.  One side or the other will have an initiative that just might peter out.  This is exactly what happened to White in this game.  When Andrew Martin got his chance around move 20, the tables were turned and soon White was dead lost.

This game occurred in Round 10 of the 1996 British Chess Championship.
