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

27. Bb2 Rac8 28. f6 Rc2+
Again ignoring the Kingside attack. c2 and the c file is controlled by Black, and Black has a Rook on 7th Rank.

29. Rxc2 Rxc2+ 30. Kd3
Other moves are not much better. The King here is on a light square, which can easily be controlled by Black.

30. ... Rxb2 31. fxg7 Rg2
For a 3rd time ignoring the attack, and places his Rook on the other open file, where there are doubled isolated pawns. White's King is trapped.

32. g5 b2 33. g6 b1=Q#
For the 4th and final time Black ignores White's threats, and it is Mate.


(KW, June 3rd) Hopefully this example will help in a better understanding of planning, Weak Square Complexes, and the Center. I certainly would be willing to go into more detail to go through my thought process, as needed.
