  An Englishman: Good Morning: Aside from that curious lineup of Knights after 21...Bc8, the game seemed rather uninteresting. Then 10 moves later, Black had a crushing bind on the center files. Quite a transformation. The culprit? 22.Nh2, perhaps?

  malt: After 21...Bc8 22.Ng3 looks obvious, instead of 22.Nh2
