Working in the background : a powerful bishop on b2!
Some time ago I posted here in my blog
and praised that bishop.
Here now two new examples with that theme.
Last friday a friend showed me a position from one of his games. He had the white pieces
I think that black`s position is better with that awful "hole" on f3 and the whitesquared weaknesses around the white king. Perhaps simple
would have lead to clear black adventage.
But instead of this simple and logical move the black player, also a friend of mine, played
and was countered by a surprising move
So in the first example we have seen the power of the Bb2 without he does move. He works effective in the background and supported the "heavy pieces"attack.-
Here in the second example there is already an impressive bishop on b2. Again white sacrifies an exchange to free the full powerof the Bb2 ,which again is working in the background
Try to find the decisive move. And the the power of the Bb2 working in the background
