White may not have a lot of Centralization, but he definitely has the Edge.

the bbpawn was probably still looking over at e5 when it were captured

the first time a white piece touches c5 it might as well be the ejection seat activator for the wgpawn as well


and a very patient wqknight -- plenty of oats & apples to keep that piece grazing in place, hopping precious few times, til it can secure mate

What an apt description for this unique game! Most queenless middlegames are not so exciting. Black should have castled when he had the chance.

In the final position, White is not only threatening pawn promotion, but the coming Nf6 arranges a Hook Mate by the rook on the back rank. Black's light-squared bishop can halt one threat, but not both.
