  profK: Love these games with both sides castle Queen Side. This one didn't quite make it to the endgame.
Feb-26-15  JimNorCal: Is the rook trapped? Black plays a6 to dislodge the defender?
Feb-26-15  RookFile: Thought he might have played 20. g5. I think white can organize Bf1 and Bh3 after this. It would have been a different kind of a game. Don't know how good it would have been.
Jun-10-18  zanzibar: Funny to not play 19.g5 since it really ties Black's shoes together by the shoelaces. Instead White actually plays to exchange off Black's misplaced knight.

Interestingly, the engine also suggests another strong alternative - 19.Nb5, playing on weaknesses on the other side of the board.
