Power of the Bishop pair endgame

  • 1. e4 e5 2. Ng1f3 Nb8c6 3. Bf1c4 Ng8f6 4. d3 h6 5. O-O Bf8c5
    Pianissimo
    • 6. c3 a6
      ? d6 is the correct move here
      • 7. d4 exd4 8. cxd4 Bc5a7 9. Nb1c3
        ? e4-e5 immediately would have been better, taking advantage of Black having no pawn on d6
        • 9... d6 10. h3 b5 11. Bc4b3 O-O 12. Rf1e1 Bc8b7 13. a3
          ? again e5 was best, Black's passive treatment of the centre should be punished
          • 13... Rf8e8 14. Bc1f4 Nc6a5 15. Bb3c2 Re8e7
            Preparing further support of e5
            • 16. Qd1d3
              Looking at h7 ideas for later
              • 16... Qd8e8 17. Nf3d2 Na5c4
                Black offers a pawn on c4 in order to take on e4
                • 18. Ra1b1
                  White declines
                  • 18... Nc4xd2 19. Bf4xd2 Qe8c6 20. d5
                    Black has tempted this pawn forward, opening up the dark square diagonal and reducing White's grip on e5
                    • 20... Qc6d7 21. Bd2f4
                      White re-establishes the e5 grip
