"A piece (Black d7-rook) that is guarded by another piece (Black f6-knight) which is subject to capture or attack (38 g4-g5! 1-0) is likely not defended at all."

"The logic 'A guarded piece (Black d7-rook) is not really guarded if the guard (Black f6-knight) can be taken or attacked (38 g4-g5! 1-0)' is not emphasized in beginner's books."

-- "The Underrated Removal of the Guard" by NM Dan Heisman

Jul-24-17  marcwordsmith: absent his last blunderful move, was Wang Yue on the ropes?
