French Tarrasch 3.Nd2 Be7[C03]
3rd Thanksgiving Open Saint Louis USA (6.3), 26.11.2012
White played the unusual plan of attacking on the queenside for a dominating strategic game.

 

Critical Position
Black has just played 33…Kg7. White has the queenside under pressure but what now?
-Bd6 improving the bishop
-Double rooks on the c-file
-Infiltrate with the queen with Qc7
-Or something else

 

White to Play
