  Sneaky: Is there a move pair missing around move 12, or is this way over my head?
Jun-15-13  TrueFiendish: Maybe if takes the N then just Bd4 with attack through the middle.

12.0-0-0

An incredible move. White simply leaves his knight en prise! This must be Navara's improvement over his own game with Iordachescu! Except in that game Navara was black.

12...Rc8

Yifan is not going to be bullied into playing a passive position up a piece.

Jun-15-13  Conrad93: Sneaky, it makes sense once you analyze it a bit further. 12...exd4 13. Bxd4 followed by by e5 gives white a strong attack on the kingside.
