And finally we will examine the plan with the bishop fianchetto.
Sample Game # 7
1.e4 c5 2. d4 cd 3. c3 dc 4. Nc3 d6 5. Bc4
Black is going to develop the bishop on the long diagonal h8-a1
6. Nf3 Nf6
Prepares further castling, though this attempt has a defect. White could destroy this plan by the well-known motive:
The standard hit, after
The killing blow is coming
And black is lost.
Sample Game # 8
1.e4 c5 2. d4 cd 3. c3 dc 4. Nc3 Nc6 5. Bc4 g6 6.Nf3 Bg7
Planning after d6 and Nf6 continue the development. But White could stop this plan by the aggressive pawn’s move
Offering the pawn sacrifice.
7…Bxe5 8.Bxf7+ Kxf7 9.Nxe5+ Nxe5 10.Qd5+ Leads to the same line
7…Nh6 8.0-0 0-0 9.Bf4 Nf5 10.g4 Nh6 11.h3 And Black’s position is cramped.
8.Nxe5 Bxe5 9.Bxf7+!
The obvious 9.Qd5 will be met by 9…Bxc3+ 10.bxc3 e6
9…Kxf7 10.Qd5+ e6 [10...Kf6 11.Ne4+ Kf5 12.g4+ wins]
11.Qxe5 Qf6 12.Qg3
And White is keeping strong attack, when Blacks King lost the castling rights.
