Bundesliga 2012-13

Here is a recent effort(TWIC 952) from the current Hungarian Champion GM Berkes. There are no big tactics, attacks or any kind of sharp play. Berkes keeps plenty of pieces on the board and pressed the queenside with a long massage.

The first gain was an extra square, and then after black tried an active defence, which then gave white a better pawn structure. Later black gave up a weak pawn which was converted nicely in a BN-BN ending.
