Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-12-14  zydeco: 22.....Ra8? is the wrong reaction to white's threatened pawn push. Probably 22.....Rf7 is better to cover the c7 pawn.
Jan-25-22  Brenin: <zydeco>: 22 ... Rf7 loses material to 23 Bxa6, e.g. 23 ... bxa6 23 Rxc6, or 23 ... Nxb4 24 Nxe5.

  mjmorri: A good example of a minority attack targeting the c7 pawn, a theme which can also occur in the QGD Chigorin defense.
