Seems like all of the power on one side of the board, which is a 'small'
8x8 board, really conveys a strong initiative to the player with the
pieces. One miscue, and you can toss material to mate.

Ed Trice vs. Anthony Cabrini, May 13, 2004
1. c4 e5 2. e3!? Nf6 3. Bd3 g6 4. Gc2 Ac6?? [I still call this piece the
Archbishop] 5. Bxg6!! hxg6 [mistakingly believing that while ...fxg6
allow the next move with check, that ...hxg6 prevents it -- not true!] 6.
Gxc6!! fxg6 7. Axg6#

OK, so some better defensive play was present, but the mates are there
since the weak side is hard pressed to balance the rapid attacks from the
opponent's strong side.
