Rab1 Nd6 $1 14. b4 b5 {Blunting White's minority attack with the magnificent support point of c4 for the Black pieces. It is fair to conclude that in such positions it is always a good idea for Black to play a Knight to d6. White must now modify his Queenside plans in some way}) (13. Rac1 Nd6 14. Na4 { But it is clear that long preparations will be needed before the b-pawn can be advanced with any hope of profit.}) 13... dxe4 14. Nd2 Nf6 {This type of position arises frequently from the QGD. The essential difference between it and the foregoing examples is the advanced position of the Black e-pawn. This generally betokens a slight imporvement in Black's prospects, for the e-pawn can be an important element in a Kingside attack, while the strong square d5 can also be veryuseful} 15. b4 $1 {This advance is possible without preparation } 15... Bd7 (15... Qxb4 16. Ncxe4 $44 {White gets good compensation}) 16. Rfc1 h5 $2 {Black is right to seek counterchances on the Kingside, but this does not mean that he can leave his Queenside completely in the lurch} (16... Rac8 $1) 17. Rab1 h4 {This practically forces the following weakening move} 18. h3 g5 19. b5 {White must hurry, or his Kingside will be overrun} 19... g4 { Black must also push on. It is too late for defence} (19... c5 20. dxc5 Qxc5 21. Ncxe4 Nxe4 22. Nxe4 Qxc2 23. Nf6+ $1 Kh8 24. Rxc2) (19... cxb5 20. Nxb5 Rac8 21. Qb2 a6 22. Nc7) 20. hxg4 Bxg4 21. bxc6 bxc6 22. Na4 Nd5 (22... Rac8 23. Qc5 {Black would have to enter a bad endgame where he has weak pawns (can't allow Qg5+)}) 23. Qxc6 Rad8 (23... Qg5 24. Nxe4 {overloaded Re8}) 24. Nc5 Bf5 25. Nb7 Qg5 (25... Rd7 26. Rc5) 26.
