This is the kind of routine GM vs non-GM win that will pass unnoticed, but has a mysterious effortless air to it. There are two major things to notice about this game.

(1)Black’s formation against the London System is effective. The ..Nd7/Ne7!? development allow black to hunt Bf4 with a quick …e5 and ..Nf5
(2)The endgame method used to exploit the bishop pair and compromised pawn structure.

Black has many imbalances to work with in the ending.

  • The strong Bd4
  • The bishop pair
  • Active rooks
  • Better structure

What do you suggest for black now?
