Jul-03-14  Rob Morrison: Instructive. This reminds me of the famous game 23 of the Botvinnik-Bronstein match, 1951. The 2 bishops aren't always superior to the 2 knights, but with a certain kind of fluid pawn structure the knights can easily get into a static, tied-down posture. In both games they try to find good squares but never do and the bishops torment them to the very end.

  Gilmoy: Rare for Black to plan to cede BB and play for ugly pawns? Deep corollary: NN are poor for supporting (or preventing) a pawn advance. Hence White retorts <14.c5!?>, and forces Black to play with the lead.

<21.c4> is obnoxious prophylaxis: stops d5 and a6-b5 plans, lures Black into burning clock on Rc8 lines ... and worst of all, says "pass". Now Black is still winning(?), and feels the burden to find a win.
