Jan-04-07  Whitehat1963: An unusual game in which the black pieces seem to love the a-file.

  Gilmoy: Weird idea: c4 constricts Black's b5, c5 leaves Black severely cramped, or saddles him with weak a- and c-pawns. 10 Na4 looks like the key move. Bizarrely, this N dominates the Q-side from here: supports c5, protects b2 for 17 turns (until 28 b3), and lets the B kick Black's Q around. Eventually, Black must push 26 .. c5 to let his B join its quadruple-defense -- this makes his B bad. Like a judoka attacking balance, White shifts to a5, then to K-side, then lets Black fix his Q-side pawns, but simplifies down to the bad B. 53,54 h4-h5 locks down Black's pawns, and his B has no life.

<hellopolgar>: 5 .. Bb4 10 .. Be7 30 .. Bf8.
