  fredthebear: 23...g6 puts six Black pawns on the 6th rank. Black will defend all but the b-pawn.

35...d5 is the next AND last pawn move Black makes.

After piece exchanges, the game ends with Black having pawn majorities on both wings as well as a queen for a rook.

This game demonstrates the importance of using the pawn structure to seize open lines and form batteries with the long range pieces to penetrate weak squares behind the opposing pawns. Mobility and piece coordination matter!
