Black has given a pawn with ..c5 to break up the pawn center in typical Grunfeld fashion. How do you assess the position?
-Black has counterplay and will safely regain the pawn
-Black is better and will regain the pawn with interest
-White has a nice hidden tactic
-White is equal but must play precisely
-White is better and will show this with concrete play

White to Play
