Feb-08-21  stanleys: The key moment was 14...e5?! - a poor decision by Sokolov, creating weaknesses and making his dark-squared bishop "bad". 14...a3!? 15.Rdc1!? (as Dolmatov intended to play), would have been an interesting continuation.

How did it make his bishop bad? It keeps white from playing e5 himself, gaining space in the center and improving is bishop on g2.

I don't see the weaknesses created by 14...e5 either. Every pawn move takes new squares and creates new weaknesses. You can't not move your pawns in a game. This move seems to give black a good square on e6 for his bishop.

Not to mention it does all this with tempo.
