  tpstar: White gets a bad game in these 11. Nfd2 e3 lines, because the Kd1 is stuck between his own pieces. 14 ... c6 is better than 14 ... Bxd2 and prevents White from consolidating. The Rb8/b7/d7 maneuver was very strong and added to the central pressure. 21 ... Ng4! was cute and allowed the Knight to ding the King - 22. hxg4 Bxc3 23. Qxc3? Bxg4+; 22. Rxe6 Rxe6 23. hxg4 Re3, or 24. Qxg4 Bxc3.
