Be it 1. b3 or 1. g3, GM Bent Larsen loved those fianchettoed bishops! GM Bojkov shows how he preferred playing Black openings, with an extra tempo. Today the Danish hero isolates his opponent's d-pawn, then uses superior development to corral it when the time is right. Just when it looks like Black may get some play, he is mated with Larsen's final two pieces. A masterful game and finish from Larsen!
