Evgeny Tomashevsky vs Daniil Yuffa – Qatar Masters Open 2015

This is a round 7 game from the 2015 Qatar Masters Open. Evgeny Tomashevsky elects the Makagonov variation against Daniil Yuffa’s King’s Indian Defense. What captured my attention in this game was an important middlegame decision. The bishop pair is generally a tremendous asset, especially in its truest form when their counterparts are two knights. Solving the pop quiz I pose for this game will require a good positional/strategic understanding.
