GM Petrov’s Attack the King! - Attack on the b-file

Opening: E84, B07: King's Indian: Samisch - Panno Main line, Pirc Defense

Player(s): Bagirov, Gufeld, Petrov, Gruvaeus

Like for the attack on the c-file, for this kind of tactic to take place, we need the enemy king to be on the Queenside. The b-file might seem a complicated file to drive a powerful attack upon, but GM Marian shows us some very instructive examples on how to take advantage of the c-file and conduct a striking attack. Queen and rooks need to collaborate, of course, without forgetting to protect their King! Studying tactics when the position is wide open, and both kings are in danger, is probably the most fun part of our path to becoming good tacticians. There are literally tons of factors we need to take into consideration, and the "sense" of danger must stay awake all the time. At the same time, our attack has to carry on as precise as possible, calculating sacrifices and subtle moves that can take our opponent off guard.
