Philidor Queenless Game[B07]
Xmas Open (7), 30.12.2012

Position 1
Black has won a pawn but it’s doubled and is attacking another(a4). White has the bishop pair and no obvious threats. What should black do now?
-19…N(either)xa4
-19…Nbd7 and occupy e5 immediately
-Something else

Black to Play

19.h5

Position 2
The game is going roughly as planned with black fighting for key dark squares, especially e5. How should black continue?

Black to Play

31.Rg6
