ch-CHN 2017

White is pressing but how to continue?

Game 2: Gao Rui-Kryvoruchko

TCh-CHN 2017

Berlin Defence 5.Re1(C67)

After 43..Nf7(Diagram)

Winning with Black in this line is not a normal expectation. Black kept equality and maintained the tension by keeping the queens on. It is not so clear who is playing for what in this position.

How should White continue?
