  maxi: The White pieces get a lot of play in this opening. Perhaps 15...♗c3 could save Black. Korchnoi did not like this defensive move, saying that this Bishop was Black's only active piece, but the fact is that White's knight is going to go to d5 and be a pain in the neck there. Also the exchange weakens the White Queen-side Pawns, and sets up a haven for the Black Queen in c4.

  whiteshark: <maxi:..<Perhaps 15...Bc3 could save Black.>> I think <15...Bxc3> is a much better move than 15...d5. Black must make up for development as fast as possible. The ♗♗pair is of minor importance here. For example <16.bxc3 d6 17.Nd5 Nxd5 18.Qxd5 Nc6! 19.Qxd6 Be6 20.Rfd1 Rac8=>
