Practical examples

White's plan is consisting on limitation of opponent's pair of Bishops.

30.e5 f5

The threat was 31.Ne4 storming on Black's weak dark squares. Now Bg4 drops out from the game and White has a chance to break into the opponent's camp.

31.Qg2 Rb8 32.Kg3!? (King can be active piece as well!) 32...Rd8 33.Nf3 Rd7 34.Rb2 Qa5 35.Qd2! (Idea is to trade Black's only active piece - Qa5) 36...Qc3 36.Bg2 Rd8 37.Rb3 Qa1 38.Rb7 Kh8 39.Qe1 Qc3 40.e6 Qe1 41.Ne1 1-0

Black has no good answer against 42.e7 Re8 43.Bc6. This example is taken from the game Karpov-Savon, Moscow 1973.

In the following position White has taken premature action with Qe4. How should Black react here?
