Rxd8 Bxd8 {In contrast with the previous examples, the respective chances are sharply defined. White must attack the King, helped by his pawn on e5; Black must make use of the d-file and his Queenside pawn majority. His possession of the outpost at d3 is obviously an important trump} 20. Ng5 {Forcing Black to relinquish the Bishop pair, for if he should weaken his King's position instead, White's material advantage would soon be decisive. } 20... Bxg5 21. Bxg5 {The strong position of this Bishop deprive Black of any opportunity of playing for control of the d-file. The Bishop can't be repulsed except by pushing up the pawns which protect the King} 21... Rfe8 (21... Be4 { defending the Kingside}) 22. Re1 {preventing the manouvre} 22... Re6 23.
