Many players with the White pieces might fall prey to the excitement of expanding on the Kingside and attacking the enemy King, and make serious mistakes like this one. A similar example was found in the game Antic — Vorobiov, played in the Kavala open of If White is careless and neglects this idea, Black may be able to exploit it as happened in this game:.
The position is already very difficult for White, since three of his pieces are under potential attack: the c4 Bishop is directly threatened by the Queen on c5, and once it retreats, the g7 Bishop can take the d4 Knight. If White simply recaptures with the Queen, the g5 Bishop will be left undefended!

This is certainly a complex tactical idea, but in order to do well in these positions with Black, you must seek intricate and elaborate ideas in the position. The Knights on c5 and e5 are exactly where they should be, and the Queen on h4 is very active.
A few moves into the game, we see Black grabbing a pawn and an advantage:. Black is a pawn up and has ideally placed pieces, due to the strong central Knights and the support of the Queen and dark-squared Bishop on the long diagonal. Indeed, Luke McShane claimed victory in the end of the game, and proved how this idea may bring fireworks to the board. In the game between Stellan Brynell and Anastasios Pavlidis played in the Malta tournament of , we see the perfect example of how the risk behind this idea can be compensatory for Black and bring him an advantage.
Black builds up a controlling position slowly, similarly to what White does in his most traditional setup. If White takes the Bishop, the following sequence takes place:. In the game, White saw this continuation and decided to retreat the King instead of taking the Bishop, which also leads to a triumphant ending for Black.
And White resigned in sight of the inevitable and indefensible Rxh3 threat. All of this information might seem enough to accurately play this pawn structure for both sides — it is indeed valuable, but there is a seemingly irrelevant question that makes a difference for any pawn structure…. That way, once a given opening is played, you will already know that there is a chance of coming across this structure, and can instantly start thinking about the plans we have covered earlier.
Particularly, this structure is reached when White does not push d4-d5 and Black ends up taking on d4 with the e5 pawn. It can occur coming from many variations, and one of them is when Black decides to take on d4 early on, before developing the b8 Knight. Another way to reach this structure is one move later, after Black has developed the Knight to d7 and White has played Bc1-e3, as pictured in the following diagram. At this point, you are fully ready to outplay your opponent once it comes up on the board!
