Critical Position 1
There is an attack in the air on the kingisde where black has just played 17…hg. What do you recommend for white?
-White needs more pieces 18.Ba3 chases off the defending rook
-Bc1 should be on the long diagonal to oppose Bf6 so 18.Bb2 followed by Rad1 and prepare c4-d5. This will also restrain Bb7
-Re1 can do more so 18.Re3-h3 to use the h-file is called for
-Ng5 has lost its usefulness. 18.Ne4 recentralizing and allowing Bh6! to exploit the kingside light squares is better
-Slow builiding with 18.Bd2 and then  Re3 and Rae1 is the way to go. Then white will be ready with sacrificing on e6 or g6 to kill black’s king position
-Something else
White to Play
