Qc2 O-O-O {Black's decision to castle Queenside was very risky, in view of White's control of the half-open c-file, the weakness created by .. Pa6, and teh White Bg2's range extending all teh way down the long diagonal toward the Black King's new residence. Presumably he reckoned on neutralizing the attack on his King by exerting pressure in the central sector.} 13. Rfc1 Nfd4 14. Bxd4 $1 {Quite correct.
