Feb-27-10  Sularus: white's threat is 28. Rc7

Black's b7 and d5 pawns are weak

If 27. ... Rc8, 28. RxR QxR, 29. QxP

If 27. ... Rb8, then 28. Rc7 Q-moves, 29. Qa7

Feb-27-10  Gnappo83: The simplification following 17...d5 clears the way for White. White has a pawn and three pieces controlling the d5 square, with a strong Bishop in g2, that doesn't allow the entry of the Rook in d5, forcing the c pawn to go in d5 and opening the "c" line, where... Black can't put a Rook because it must defend d5!

Maybe it's wrong to play 16....Rad8, but it's very difficult for me to find a single wrong move. Seems like White's plan is more efficient. It attacks the Queen side while it's not vulnerable in the King side.
