  fredthebear: A good start for White until 13.Nc4?! which seems innocent enough. Stockfish would rather see 13.Re1 or 13.a4.

White's pieces get stuck behind his own pawns.

Black's bishop and queen seize the a1-h8 long diagonal while keeping the opposite h1-a8 long diagonal semi-closed. Black's rook battery occupies the half-open e-file and comes down the board. The White rooks scurry to connect.

Pin to win works at all time controls!

Piece activity, mobility is all important! https://www.chessjournal.com/piece-...
