Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-06-05  Andrzej Morro: What is the White's answer to 16 Ng6?
Apr-06-05  Pawn Ambush: Either 17.g3 or 17.Qd2, neither look promising!
Dec-12-09  WhiteRook48: looks like it was going to be 17 Bg3 whatever black played
Nov-30-12  Shams: On 16...Ng6 17.Qd2 Nxf4 18.exf4 I can't see Black ever exploiting White's pawns, which are technically weak but also quite useful in restraining Black's pieces.

How does White lose after Rae1 and perhaps Bd1-c2<?> He has good pressure down the central files and can think about g2-g4 using his pawn majority if some pieces come off the board.
