TCh-HUN 2012–13 Mako HUN (4), 18.11.
The game went to queenless play quite early and then black managed to get BN for R with a small combination.
Black must continue the technical phase with purposeful play. White is saddled with an isolated e-pawn but for the moment Ke2 keeps it secure. What should black do?
