The Chess Struggle

In my search to give you chess food, my archives occasionally uncover games and strategies that I choose which I hope enables you to broaden your knowledge and sharpen your spirit. My choice often conveys the charm of my “square count” theory.

White: Suba   vs.  Black:  Pasman  Opening:  Benoni Defense

l.  d4  Nf6  2. c4  c5  3. d5  b5  4. c:b5  a6  5. b:a6  g6  6. g3  Bg7  7. d6!?  Risk in chess by not blocking the d-pawn’s advance, a normal approach, being 6….d6.
