  Gilmoy: An epaulette rotated 45 degrees is also a <swallowtail>. Gulp.

A very useful pattern to memorize vs. fianchettos of all sorts.

DVORETSKY ANNOTATES: <"Arabidze realizes that she has to secure the knight's invulnerability, so she takes the b4-square away from the bishop and also prepares an unpleasant rook invasion on b5.">
