  naresb: White demonstrated an example of exchange and squeeze, how by exchanging opponent's pieces he could be deprived of space adv leading to squeeze. During an opposite situation of his active pieces getting exchanged, simply by forcing move or tactical shots, he avoided his active pieces getting exchanged.

  naresb: White with 17. Rd4 Rxd4 exchanged Black's active piece thus reducing his space adv, with 18. cxRd4 exchanged with a forcing move, with 19. Bf4 and supported by 'Nc4/d4/Qf3' Black Queen is squeezed out of space.

  naresb: With 20 Nab6, 21... Qc6, 24 Bd6 Black offered simplification by exchanging White's active pieces to which White came out with either creating/releasing a tactical weapon or a forcing move with 21. Ne3, 22. Bg2, 25. a4, 26. Nd5, 27. Bd2 thus restricting Black's strategy to exchange white's active pieces.
