TWIC 1349 Canadians in Action

Grunfeld 7.Be3

PNWCC Master Artist Point Rd5

White is slightly ahead in development and is looking to attack but his king remains in the centre

Black has a couple of queenside pieces out of play and the Qa5 is rather cut off from the kingside. For now the Bg4 stops kingside pawn storm ideas

What do you recommend for White?
