Jul-12-19  areknames: Clever pun and interesting game. 22.b4! is the crtical move, breaking through on the Q side. Now, they always say you move the wrong rook; if Black had played 20...Rdxc8, b4 wouldn't have been possible, at least for the time being. White is still better but there is no immediate way of gaining a decisive advantage. So, I suppose you always capture with the wrong rook as well.
Jul-12-19  areknames: <Isolde my ticket for this show> Hahaha!
Jul-13-19  areknames: <they always say you move the wrong rook>. That should read <they say you always move the wrong rook>. Apologies.
