GW-KW, Point Count Chess Raw Discussion, File #7:
Part of the Advanced Beginner's Chess Guide (Section 2)
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.
