Black's game plan: Exchange queens/play endgame

1st Game : Check diagram below (GAME VIEWER 1)

ScotchGambit 11...Ne6

The idea to exchange queen's is not reasonable due to white's better positioned knight at c5 square and pawns at the center. It is a nice endgame lesson about which is better: knight or bishop? Depends on position.

2nd Game: Check diagram below (GAME VIEWER 2)

Black's Game Plan: Acquire two bishops advantage

ScotchGambit 12...Ne4

Black's middle game strategy went well. GM Gawain Jones had a hard time finding a breakthrough. But his tricks paid off. Let's find out.... but have a hot , delicious coffee first.
