Improve Your Chess: Strong Center Wins

Opening: A43: Queen's Pawn Game/Benoni


Today's show: White plays the opening passively and strangely and Black gets a small advantage. Both sides make minor mistakes but throughout Black mostly retains some edge. Then White makes the sharp move 25.f5? and, after both sides miss the best line, White just drops the pawn. Shortly thereafter Black turns down the trade of queens and obtains a winning attack.
