  al wazir: After 19. Rfd1 white has no problems.
Oct-18-14  goodevans: <al wazir> 19. Rfd1 is much better, of course, but I wouldn't say white's position was problem-free. Black has <19...Rae8> to put pressure on the e-file and if white plays <Be3> at any point then <...Qh2+> followed by <...f5> is hard to meet.

  morfishine: <al wazir> Exactly what I was thinking

<goodevans> Very true, as I am finding out, but this begs the question: "If White foresaw the difficult defense he faced after <19.Rfd1> (which admittedly holds for the time being), how could he play the howler <19.Rfe1> which loses eloquently and immediately?"

  WannaBe: Nice pun. Good movie, too!
Oct-18-14  Rookiepawn: 19.Rfe1 is a blunder, but Black has already an attacking position imho.

10. Nxe4, changing ponys and then queens... Still that pawn in e4 appears to me as a pain in the neck, and the WN has no comfy retreat I think.

Any improvements for W?
