Minority Interests (4)

Thus far, we have seen successful examples where Black manages to exchange light-squared bishops early, which usually favours him. Against an accurate white move-order, this is not possible, but Black is still not without counterplay. A piece attack on the kingside is his main weapon. The following game sees this work very well against slow white play. Fuster hunts down and eventually annexes the poor black a-pawn, but while he is doing so, his kingside comes to resemble the Marie Celeste, and his monarch pays the price.
