That depends on whether you have in fact seen the replies 22.Nb7#/Nxf7#...

Mar-12-17  Sourav: This game is given in the book "The Complete Manual of Positional Chess" by Sakaev and Landa. In that book, the authors criticize the move 7...Nbd7. They state that White can now drive away the Knight on f6. But, can't White do that even if Black does not play 7...Nbd7?

Also, even if the move is bad, how do I realize that it, or a similar move, is bad when I am myself playing?
