Position 2
Black seems to be making progress in the RR-RR ending but now the doubled c-pawns are under attack after 37.Ra4. If black is not careful there may be some serious counterplay on the c-file to deal with. What do you suggest for black?

Philidor Ending[B07]
1st Korbach GM Korbach GER (9.6), 14.12.2012

Position 1
The ending is roughly equal. What should black do now? This is about planning and understanding, not tactics.

  • -Advance on the kingside with …g5
  • -Continue development with …Be6
  • -Play for the d4 outpost with …Ne6
  • -Something else

Black to Play

14…a5

Position 2
Black has some pressure on the d-file and a strong bishop but what’s next?

  • -Create a second front on the kingside
  • -Open up lines on the queenside with 30…c4!
  • -Get the king more involved on the queenside with 30…R8d7 then …Kd8-c7-b6 etc
  • -Something else
