Improve Your Chess: One Bad Piece…
Opening: C47: Giuoco Pianissimo
After some opening transpositions the players reach a fairly well-known position, but both sides miss some early chances. A key move occurs when White captures on d5 with a pawn, entombing his light square bishop for many moves. Black correctly reacts by attacking on the other side of the board. Although Black does not find the killer put-away idea, he emerges from the middlegame with enough additional pawns to easily convert an endgame advantage.
