I am a beginner in chess (1313 lichess, 1177 chess.com rapid) and am in the process of learning the basics of the Panov attack from the Hanging Pawns Youtube channel. In this video, at 15:00,
[FEN ""] [Startply "19"] 1. e4 c6 2. d4 d5 3. exd5 cxd5 4. c4 Nf6 5. Nc3 Nc6 6. Bg5 Bf5 7. Bxf6 exf6 8. cxd5 Nb4 9. Bb5+ Bd7 10. Qe2+ Qe7 11. Bxd7+ Kxd7 12. Kd2 Qxe2+ 13. Ngxe2
the presenter, in trying to prove that e6 is the correct move for Black on move 6, states that the black king is "naked, unsafe and completely lost" on move 10 if Black plays a normal move such as Bf5. I did not understand why, as the queen could easily block the check, so I ran the line through the lichess engine which gave me the above continuation.
- Why we can't block with the bishop: d6 wins the bishop.
- Why Kd2 was played: to prevent Nc2.
I still do not understand why the position literally went from +0.1 to +1.8 so suddenly. Black is not even that far behind in development. What does White have in this position?
