Standard #39:  No Like My Pawn?

Standard #39: No Like My Pawn?


Here I share a USCF rated game played at the Parma Chess Club in June of 2019 against Anthony Hoag.  Anthony (wisely?) declines my Smith Morra Gambit and we enter a Moroczy Bind type position which then transforms into an IQP (isolated queen pawn) position where white is strategically trying to win the isolated pawn, but black gets nice counterplay with Bg5!

White is better in the end game that results but can your favorite player pull it out?  (I am your favorite right??)  jk  Hope you enjoy!

Hope you enjoy and learn something!
