Frau Bundesliga Div1 2012–13 Germany GER (1.1), 06.10.2012
This game can be studied under the following themes

  • Pawn structure
  • Fighting against pawns
  • Endings-extra pawn conversion

Critcial Position 1
Black has a compromised pawn structure on the queenside while white’s structure remains clean. What should black’s plan be? How do you play?

Black to play

Critcial Position 2
Deep into the endgame black has an extra pawn. White however is resisting and has a passed c-pawn and a supported Nd6 deep in black’s territory. Converting the extra is not so straightforward. How should black play?
