Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-11-14  heuristic: I'm not qualified; perhaps others can clarify. but from 15.Rd3 to 21.Nc2, there is something wrong with WHT's strategy.

ie. 21.Nc2 seems misguided. BLK's Kside pawn march needs to be addressed. 21.c5 dxc5 22.bxc5 Qa6 23.Rd2

26.Bd1 is bad. 26.Nf5+ Bxf5 27.exf5 c4 28.Bxc4 Qxf5
