GM Neil McDonald calls this position a "gruesome example of a blockade".

Mar-04-08  vonKrolock: <9...♗xc3+> Surely not a wise decision - why not 9...h6, to answer 10.♗h4 with 10...♕a5 etc

<10...0-0> And again 10...h6 was better

May-14-09  WhiteRook48: 17....RA6???
Apr-11-10  backrank: 17. ... Ra6 was forced, since the Nb6 hang and had no flight square. The problems of Black arose much earlier. 7. ... Nd4 was a serious loss of time, and 9. ... Bxc3+ was even worse.
