A tremendous example of <WEAK SQUARES>.
White's queenside pawns all reside on <DARK SQUARES>, as does his bishop. As such, he is unable to prevent the Black king from penetrating decisively on the <LIGHT SQUARES>. That is, White loses this game because he cannot <DEFEND> his weak queenside <LIGHT SQUARES>.
|Nov-06-07|| ||clma55: NotyetaGM: you're 100% right, looks like a chess lesson on weak squares.|
|Aug-19-08|| ||Sololoy: Before 38 dxc5? Black King has no way to penetrate the QS pawns...|
|Aug-20-08|| ||Cyphelium: <Sololoy> In fact, I think he has. 38. ♔g2 (what else?) 38.- cxd4 39. cxd4 b4!|
