We apply the chess strategy and basic moves from the Universal System to have some orientation. That’s all we need.
In the following game White gives his dark bishop for a knight. This weakens the dark squares in White’s camp.
Black puts his pieces on dark squares and penetrates ON THE DARK SQUARES into White’s position. This way Black gets a deadly unstoppable attack.
Two white pieces are inactive at the white queenside and can’t be used on time to defend the white kingside (knight c3, bishop b3). This leads to a MAJORITY OF ATTACKERS at the KINGSIDE: – four attackers (bishop c8, Ng4, Qh4, Bc5 versus three defenders (Ng3, Rf1, Qe2). White gets overrun.
Black moves dxc. If now fxe then Ng4 attacking the e-pawn AND the kingside black squares.
Black played c4 to get rid of his c5 pawn that blocks a dark square and the diagonal a7-g1. He needs this diagonal to control it with his bishop. (Bc5)
