Sample text

At first, therefore, Black need not provide against the threatened exchange. I shall treat at some length the various defences from which Black can choose, and in studying this most important King's side opening, we shall have occasion to note many points of general interest for operations in the centre. Broadly speaking, two entirely different systems of defence can be distinguished: either Black will try to maintain his centre pawn, or else, giving up the centre, try to gain some other advantage as compensation.

7. P−K3 Kt−KB3 P−B4 Kt−B3 B−Q3 Castles.  KPxP, B−Kt5; 8.  R−QB1, QxP.  THE OPENING 40 Chess Strategy In order not to relinquish the square at QKt4 to Black, White can also try the following manoeuvre: 6. 7. 8. 9.  B−Q3, B−Kt2, the result is the symmetrical position in Diagram 36.  36 When treating of the middle game, we shall find that even in this apparently fully equalised position the influence of the first move is still at work.  ...  This forces the Bishop to move twice, and Black regains the move he lost in his development, when he played PxP.

6.  He can either prepare for P−QB3 to support his QP. or he can develop his King's side, holding the P at K5 only I 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. Kt−Kt5 P−QB3 Kt−QR3 P−KB4 Kt−B2 Kt−B3 B−Q3 Kt−Kt3 P−QR3 P−QB4 Kt−B3 Castles B−Q2 P−B4 The sacrifice BxPch, as mentioned above, was threatened. 14. 15. Castles R−Kt1 Kt−R5 P−QKt4 If White does not wish to lose so many moves with his Kt, he can effect the intended protection of his QP as follows: 7. Q−Q2 P−QR3 not P−QB4 at once, because of Kt−Kt5.  Castles Castles P−QB4 P−B4 Kt−QB3 and so on.
