  tamar: When the Black King steps out for some sunshine with 22...Kd7 and 24...Kc6 it looks safe, but Stein's 26 Rxa4! traps him outside his forces.

  Bowen Island: The repositioning of pieces starts on move 19 when Black's dark-squared Bishop heads to the Queen-side and a dominating, unopposed diagonal.

  Bowen Island: This game collection is from Johan Hellsten's, "Mastering Chess Strategy". I borrowed the book from the local library and found it to be a wonderful resource. The book has 240 illustrative games from I.M.s and GMs, as well as 382 test positions at the back of the book. Solutions are included with relevant notes to the themes being studied.

Recommend highly to anyone willing to put in the work!
