Grunfeld Games

Game 1: Meier-Heimann

4.Bf4 Bg7 5.e3 0-0(D84)

German Masters 2017

After 24..a4(Diagram)

Black made an odd decision earlier in the game to give up the bishop pair but remain with an awful structure to defend. Now the c-file pin is asking for troube.

How should White continue?

After 24..a4
