  HeMateMe: was 13. d6 a good move? black could have taken with Queen, but instead voluntarily accepts doubled center pawns. You see it know and then, but it looks suspect.

  HeMateMe: Can White transfer his King to h2, and then activate his Bishop, maybe push his passed pawn?

  Marmot PFL: <HeMateMe> Black takes with the pawn so the queen guards b7.
