Example text

I can sympathize if you find this po­ sition rather scary for Black, but let's not forget that White no longer h as a battering ram in the shape of a centre pawn . Unless Bl ack blunders, there's no good reason why White shoul d be able to break through his defen sive line. e6! Here's a way for Black to blunder and lose: 9 ... b6?? 10 i.. xf6 gxf6 (or 10 ... e7 - 11 ... h 6+ (if 11 ... b 7 it's m ate in one) 12 'it'b1 and Black h as no defence to the double threats of 1 3 ttJxf6+ and 13 ttJxe7, uncovering an attack on a8.

White therefore h as to devise a plan of action to undermine the black centre. From a strategic point of view he has two options: play a violent e2-e4 breakthrough or else arrange c2-c4 af­ ter all .
