Position 1
The Rb7 can be considered active or out of play. Black will soon play …e5 to undermine the c-pawn and the central pawn chain will collapse. What do you suggest for white?

White to Play

17…Na6
Position 2
The ending is very complicated. Ne7 is trapped and Rb7 is out of play. The central pawn chain is also being undermined in light of the coming …ed. What should white do?
White to Play
21…Kf8
