Rac1 Rc8 24. Rc3 Qg7 25. Rdc1 Bd8 {In positions in which one player has the initiative on the Queenside and the other on the Kingside, the odds are usually with the one who is pressuring the opponent's King. In the present case White's Queenside advantage (pressure against the semi-backward c-pawn is hardly sufficient compensation for the initiative which Black can build up on the other flank} 26. Kf1 $1 {Taking the bull behind the horns: since the effectiveness of Black's play on the Kingside depens largely on the presence of the White King there, White runs his King straight across to the other side} 26... g5 27.

Notice that in a direct attack the presence of Bishops of opposite colour is an advantage rather than disadvantage for the attacking side} 43... Kf6 44. Rh7 Qg8 (44... Ke5 45. Rf7) 45. Qc3+ Be5 46.
