Kibitzer's Corner
May-15-17  Ulhumbrus: The move 12...Qa4! suggests that this attack along the fourth rank upon White's central e4 pawn has to be considered a potential threat. In that case why not defend the e4 pawn by 14 Bd3? The answer is that this obstructs White's defence of the d6 pawn. It seems that the advance d6 has made the e4 pawn vulnerable to attack in at least this one respect.
