Daniel King: What happens next? Question #1

When you reach the end you can pause the video and study the position to decide which move you choose. Once you have made your choice GM King will explain whether your choice is correct or not, and more importantly why exactly this is the case. Even if you have chosen the correct move you might want to go back and see why the other alternative fails, all explained in the wonderfully didactic style of GM Daniel King.
