Notes by D La Pierre Ballard on 2010/08/16.

Black plays the King's Indian which gives Black
quite a lot of flexibility as long as Black hits the
dark squares strongly. Black's Pawns will be on dark
squares in the center: e7 or e5, c7 or c5 and d6.
Black will have his dark square Bishop as his bad
Bishop in front of his King to protect his King with
the chance that it may eventually hit the long dark
diagonal. With the dark square Bishop on g7 Black
will be less cramped with more room for his other
three minor pieces. Even his Queen is already
hitting the dark squares from d8.

The Pawn's around Black's King will be on light
squares which with the dark square Bishop will give
Black's King a lot of safety and may even allow
Black to advance those Pawns. With his King well
protected Black may also advance his Queen side
Pawns. Black can adapt to almost anything. White
will have to defend his initiative.

White will have the advantage of more space and more
freedom.

1.d4 Nf6
2.c4 g6
3.Nc3 Bg7
4.e4 d6
5.f4 0-0
6.Nf3 c5
7.d5 e6
8.Be2 exd5
9.cxd5 Re8

White has played most agressively and will try to
overwhelm Black with a central Pawn storm. Readers
with chess software will see many interesting
variations in the following and likely some missed
opportunities for both sides.

10.e5 dxe5
11.fxe5 Ng4
12.Bf4 Nd7

Here Black could have won a Pawn with 12..Nxe5.
This would have led to a position without Black's
dark square Bishop in which White would still have
had the Pawn on d5.

13.e6 Nde5
14.Ng5 Nh6

Black is putting great pressure on White's central
Pawns to eliminate their mobility and other
possibilities while covering all of the squares
around his own King.

15.Qd2 fxe6

Black has enough pressure on the advanced Pawns
that he can eliminate one before White completes his
development. This lessens White's pressure on f7.

16.0-0-0 Nhf7

The Black Knight on f7 is looking at d6 to blockade
the White Pawn on d5. White hinders this but
exchanges his forward Knight to do so. Note how well
Black is covering the dark squares.

17.Nxf7 Nxf7
18.d6 Bd7

The commanding White Pawn on d6 is now blockaded
not by a Knight as preferred but, at least, by a
Bishop. A blockaded Pawn cannot move forward
regardless of what piece blockades it.

19.Bc4 a6

At last Black has time to play a6 to get his Queen
side Pawns moving. Notice that the Black Knight on
f7 not only hits a lot of important squares h6, g5,
e5, d6, d8, but also obstructs the diagonal g8-a2
which offers some protection from the White Bishop
on c4. The Pawn on a6 also helps prevent White from
playing Nb5 or Bb5.

20.Rhe1 b5
21.Bxe6 Rxe6
22.Nd5 Nxd6
23.Rxe6 Bxe6
24.Bxd6 Ra7

Things have clarified somewhat and some exchanges
have occurred. Black is not interested in winning
material but in hindering White's initiative. Once
this has been done then Black's pieces will become
active against White's pieces and King.

25.Nf4 Bxa2

Black captures on a2 more to weaken White's b3 than
to take a Pawn. White's King is exposed and has a
lot of weak squares around him. If White's
initiative fails then White's position will be full
of weak squares and uncoordinated pieces.

26.Qe2 Bh6

Finally, White's loose position begins to tell. It
is important to notice that the White Knight on f4
is protected by the Bishop on d6. Bishops do move
backwards, you know.

27.Kc2 Bc4

Black plays the Bishop to c4 to give it a place
where it is protected. It protects the Black King on
the diagonal a2-g8 and hits f1 which might
eventually be a good place for White's Rook.

28.Qe4 Rd7

This relieves White's pressure on the d1-d8 file by
the White Rook on d1.

29.Ne6 Qf6
30.Qa8+ Kf7

All of the squares around Black's King are
protected so that no checks will work. The Black
Bishop on c4 even covers f1. Black's Queen even
covers h8. White was in time pressure at this point.

31.Ng5+ Qxg5 0-1

The continuation 32.Qf3+ Qf5+ 33.Qxf5 gxf5 34.Bxc5
Bb3+ would have increased Black's advantage. The
well protected squares around Black's King and the
weak squares around White's King would have really
come into effect.

By the term "coordinated pieces" is meant that the
chess pieces protect each other and are active. They
should also protect the squares around the King so
that they can be moved to block a distant check and
to protect against checks next to the King. Whatever
squares are important or might be important should
be hit by the coordinated pieces.
----------------------------------------------------------------
Black plays the King's Indian which gives Black quite a lot of
