Today, I read Silmans article on Pawn Structure here...
He has been stressing repeatedly and so does he again on pattern recognition and its importance.
Here, I am posting a game of mine on fics, a 3 min blitz game, where i win based on theme of smothered mate. I would have lost hadnt i knew the pattern.... which highlights the importance of pattern recognition.
Theme : Smothered mate-- Philidors mate
