Annotating a master game #2
Hello and welcome to part 2 of my "Annotating a master game" series. I quite enjoyed doing yesterdays blog and am doing another one today. My method of learning the Catalan is being quite successful currently. I am checking out some theory for a line and then analysing a strong GM game from it.
Please note that when I am annotating this game, I do not know the future moves. I will be trying to guess the next move from the player - this is meant to be a good way to study GM games (and it is!).
Yesterday we checked out a game arising from 1.d4 Nf6 2. c4 e6 3. g3 d5 4. Nf3 dxc4 5. Bg2 Nc6 6. Bb4+
Today we will be looking at 6. Nd7, the second most popular move after 6. Bb4+.
The following annotations have been written without an engine.
Thanks for reading
I have learnt from this game that a weak pawn structure is not going away and there is no need to exploit it right away if you do not need to.
