“Feather” Pawn Structure

by Bogdan Girmacea

The feather is formed by pawns c4-d5-e4 for white and c5-d6-e5 for black. This kind of pawns structure arises from openings like King’s Indian or different type of Indian openings.

In the next game, white doesn’t do seriously strategical errors, but just some small tactical inaccuracies, which were enough for black to take initiative on kingside and to create powerful mate threats. I am talking about game Larsen – Fischer, game 4 from candidates match, 1972. The game started as a King’s Indian, one of the favorite openings of Fischer.
