Zalakaros ‘A’ (Magyar Nyílt Bajnokság) Zalakaros (9), 16.06.2012
This game can be studied with the following themes in mind

  • Small center attack
  • Pawn centers in full contact
  • Attack  

Position 1
The solid small center has been formed. White has just played 14.Rfe1. There does not seem to be much happening in the position so it is hard to anticipate the course of events.

Position 2
The center has expoded after white played 23.e4 and now the pawn centers are in full contact.

Position 3
The attack is well underway.But how to kill black?

White to play
