The following game played at the US Championship between Gata Kamsky and Conrad Holt is an instructive example of positional play, especially in the endgame. Kamsky skilfully exploits the advantage of the bishop pair to discoordinate his opponent's pieces and manoeuvre his way to victory.

This game earned the admiration of Fabiano Caruana, who tweeted his compliments on Kamsky's technique. A fine achievement which secured the current champion his first win in this year's US Championship.
