Cemoblanca: I'm just reading http://www.amazon.com/Chess-Secrets... & this is the very first game of the book.
"Your eye on the wings, your mind on the centre, that is the deepest meaning of positional play." ~ Nimzowitsch
A Karpovian retreat. No other player has ever been more skilled at using the back rank to increase the energy of his pieces than the 12th World Champion.
Black begins a plan to seize control of a complex of dark squares on the queenside.
Depriving the c4-pawn of the chance to be solidified by b2-b3. Philidor was doing this in the 18th century!
An essential advance, or else 26.Ne4 will break the blockade.
Now begins the 'Capablanca' phase, with the black queen and rook penetrating via the open files onto the oponent's back rank. Step by step the white pieces are ousted from the squares they need to defend.
Black now has a winning endgame. It still requires some work, but none of Kramnik's four 'advisors' were lacking a fabulous technique in so-called simple positions.
If 57.Kxc5, 57...e3 and 58...e2 will queen.
A very nice 'Kramnikian' game! :)
