Kibitzer's Corner
May-16-12  sorokahdeen: A perfect game for white.

No heroic combinative attack, but no obvious blunders on either side, either.

White just had a couple of structural advantages in the form of his more compact pawn structure, a strong blockading knight versus a bishop made 'bad' by his pawn structure and against white's dominating occupation of the e-file with his rook and king smothering possible freeing moves to give the bishop greater range and blocks it out of the defense.

If black can be said to have made a mistake, it can be trying to break white's queenside pawn structure with the a5, a4, a3 sequence when his pieces are in no position to get into a position to exploit the weakness in question.

Wonderful to watch white turn that into a convincing win.
