Jun-26-20  MordimerChess: That's actually free lesson from World Champion how to execute minority attack. We don't study boring theory, just enjoy the game and then use it in our own games :D

Enjoy and learn!

Jun-27-20  Ulhumbrus: Black contracts the backward c pawn from a minority attack and this time he does not get away with it.

One question is why Black has to pay for his backward c pawn this time.

One example of an answer is that if after 25 Bxa6 the knight manoeuvre 28 Nc3-e2 followed by 31 Ne2-f4 and then 32 Nxe6 counts as a potential threat this suggests that the backward c pawn hampers Black's ability to answer the threat. However this is not a final answer. One question is whether Black can organise his pieces better to answer the threat.
