  An Englishman: Good Evening: Computer preparation, perhaps--what human would think that 12.Na1 puts the Knight on a *good* square? Nice little Q & R attack at the end.

  paavoh: Combining 7. Nb3, 10.Bd2 perhaps tricked Black to think that pushing his a-pawn leads to an advantage. After 11. O-O-O, 12. Na1, 13.Nc2 the White King seems quite safe actually. Nice prep.
Feb-17-20  cormier: i think 17...Nb4 or 17...Nd4 is better
