  fredthebear: Black controls from start to finish. Black does a nice job of development, gaining space, coordinating his pieces and squeezing White by creating a passer in the middle transitioning to the king in the corner. White does little beyond the equator. It appears White should have traded rooks (it often takes three pieces to mate; having just two is much more difficult to pull off). But White also has four isolated pawns and the lesser minor piece (N vs B) for a bleak ending. White must be wishing he'd played the queenside and the queens differently earlier in the game.

Perhaps the real beauty of this game is the lengthy string of moves when Black has the initiative without needing a combination to sustain it. He makes maximum use of simple threats to pressure and continually improve his position to keep White on the defensive.
