Game 2, KW's Own Game Analysis, Attempting to Help GW Understand Control of the Center
[June 3rd 2011]

(KW, June 3rd) Let's look at another example from a game with my son (fatjonny, although he is anything but fat; he does rock climbing, jogging, volleyball, and other sports regularly, and his upper body shows it). My handle is KnightBishop (I am a night owl, and I have been a pastor for over 35 years, although now I am a financial planner - semi retired. So KnightBishop seems as close as I can get to some of my qualities in the chess world.). I think it illustrates Weak Square Complexes, as well as Planning and Control of the Center.

Black decides to use the Nimzovitch Defense, an all purpose defense. Up to this point, White has not declared his intentions, so Black is waiting to see which way White wants to go.
