Improve Your Chess: Highly Instructive Games - Bernstein-Meises 1904

Opening: B90:


Meises plays the interesting Four Knights Variation of the Sicilian but he plays a line now considered dubious. Bernstein obtains first the bishop pair but then bind on the dark squares (hence Chernev's title "That Old Black Magic").  White instructively invades and blockades the dark squares, forcing Black into first passivity, and then slowly losing material. Bernstein finally allows a trade into a bishop of opposite color endgame, but one that is easily won.
