  suenteus po 147: Great prophylactic moves in this game by Ivanchuk. Kamsky essentially has to play a knight down the whole game.

Note the pawn structure pattern: ♙a3-b3 vs ♙a4-b5. It is similar to Averbakh vs Korchnoi, 1965 ♙g3-h3 vs ♙g5-h4 with good explanations and some more fine examples linked.

Jun-03-18  Saniyat24: Gotta go, but where?
Jan-04-19  Dave12: So that how a well played Marshall looks like.
Dec-23-19  siggemannen: 26. Re5 perhaps?
