Exploiting Open Lines.

Pin It





White to play

Imbalances :

  • White has more queenside space.
  • d6-pawn is attacked by a White Bishop on a3 and the c-file is a semi-open file. Can this semi-open file be exploited to gain the advantage.
  • On b-file White has already formed a battery. Can this Battery formation utilised to gain advantage.
  • c5-square is the best seat for the Black Knight on d7.
  • e5-d6-c7 is a best pawn chain for Black. It is a general principle that always attack at the base of the chain pawn. In this position c7 is the base pawn. Can we attack the base pawn to destroy the chian and  capture d6-pawn?
