GM Medvegy,Z won this game by not attempting to do much except for creating a solid but unbalanced position. White began a bit passively on the queenside and then turned to outright aggression on the kingside.
This game illustrates the following middlegame themes
- defense against aggressive line opening play
- consolidation of P+
- exploiting weak pawns
- endgame transition for defense and consolidation

White has sacrificed a kingside pawn for the attack and has begun to push on the g-file. What do you recommend for black?
Medvegy fought back from a poor position but ultimately lost a tough endgame battle with many interesting points.
Black is a pawn up and has just advanced on the kingside with 34…g5. What do you recommend for white?
