In the future, black will take white’s queen-side pawns and win the game in an endgame. Let’s draw the conclusions from this game and from the whole lesson. The conclusions.  The side with a pawn center should push it forward to get a space advantage and probably domination. Then he can continue attacking in the center or transfer the attack on a flank.  The other side should attack the opponent’s pawn center to destroy it or to blockade it. 53 There are some specific rules for the positions with the closed center:  A pawn center gives you advantages when it is well supported by your pieces.

Also we know that white will use a pawn assault to attack the base of his opponent’s central pawn chain. What is this base? It is the basis of an opponent’s pawn chain, which is fixed by your pawn. Here it is the d6 pawn, which is blocked by the white pawn on d5. c5. White realized his plan vigorously. b4 white has achieved his goal: he opened the queen-side and started a direct attack there. Bb6! Rc8 white is winning. In the game, black simply castled 11…0-0. c6. cd as well. Both ways helps white to open the queen-side position.

That’s why I’d like to give you another rule: a pawn center gives you advantages when it is well supported by your pieces. Otherwise, it is a weakness and an easy object for an attack. It is very important to understand it. We may conclude that the best thing you can do is to attack an opponent’s pawn center and to destroy it. However, it is not always possible. Sometimes, the pawn center is well protected and you can’t destroy it. In this case, you should use another plan: the blockade of an opponent’s central pawns.
