Mar-08-11  Everett: I wonder if Bronstein considered 14.c5, attempting to turn off black's LSB and fixing c6 as a weakness.

I also wonder if 22.b5 has any merit, freeing b4 for white's N, softening a7 as well as having the option of Bf4 and a lock on the d5 square.

14. c5 Nb4! is good for Black, who can play ...Nd5 and ...e5.

22. b5 Ne5 23. Nxe5 Bxe5 24. Rfc1 Bd6 doesn't look very good for White, as Black has the plan ...Rc7, ...e5, ...f4.

Mar-17-11  Everett: <newzild> You are probably right, yet after 14.c5 Nb4 15.Qb3 Nd5 I think white can get some interesting play with the positional 16.Bd4 or the more enterprising 16.Nd4 Qd7 17.cxb6 axb6

22.b5 may indeed be a sour move. Thought I could avoid exchanging knights, but this seems not possible.
