Now, another game will show us the dangers of the black's position, if to castle kingside. Let us see what happened.} 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nf6 {The Petroff Defense.} 3. Nxe5 d6 4. Nf3 Nxe4 5. Nc3 Nxc3 6. dxc3 Be7 7. Be3 O-O {Here, maybe black is confident to defend the king from any threat, and decides to castle kingside.} 8. Qd2 Nc6 9. O-O-O Be6 10. h4 {Yes, this is a standard approach when white begins to create pressure at black's kingside.} Ne5 11. Ng5 {This knight post idea is to offer black to exchange it, to open the h-file to penetrate the h7 pawn.} Bf5 12. Be2 h6 13. f3 {Yes, who cares about the knight at g5 that is the main idea to set-up an attack on h-file.} h5 {This does not help black either. The knight still annoys the lazy black king.} 14. Rhg1 {This is going to be very difficult to prevent white from destroying black's kingside.} Qd7 15. Bd4 Qa4 16. Kb1 { Of course.} c5 17. b3 Qc6 18. Be3 Bg6 19. Rdf1 {White is "ALL IN"... READY TO STRIKE...} f6 20. Ne6 Rfe8 21. g4 hxg4 22. f4 Qd7 23. fxe5 {Black resigned because the queen at d7 cannot take the knight at e6 due to the move Bc4. This game is very easy for white, GM Mikhail Panarin knows well what to do when black's king castle is kingside. It is really unpleasant for black because most of white's forces are aiming at destroying black's defensive structure. Thank you and God Bless You all.. keep safe always.} 1-0
