Hungarian TCH 2012-13 Rd7-Szabo K(HUN)

TWIC 955
The French Winawer Poisoned Pawn is a popular line but the attempt to duck massive theory with 11…dc puts black on the wrong end of a sharp line after 12.h4!  Black badly needs a good idea here as white gets big pressure with the simple Rb1/Rg1 formation.

Typical mutual attacks are in progress. How doesblack continue? Protect the queenside or charge ahead on the kingside?
