    It is about opposition and sister squares. There has been a thread about it before.

    It is not that simple. It is because of two entry squares (b5 and g5) that white is able to put black's king on the wrong foot. That is where sister squares come into the picture. Read this (or other) article http://www.samuel-beckett.net/hugill.html
