Just a thought....tell me if I missed something...please!

If the g pawns goes to g5, how can white threaten to invade on the K-side ?! White needs to create two simultaneous threats on both sides of the board to win this - the a pawn advance, combined with King infiltration on the K-side - doesn't he?!

For example, say White seals the K-side with g5, then when White later plays a4, Black is not obliged to take the a pawn. Black can hold the following position:








Analyse position



White first guarantees that black has to do bxa3 because of the threats simultaneously of Kh6 and Bxc5. If White had though sealed the k-side with g5 earlier, than this is a different situation without the threat hanging over black of Kh6.
