1/1/2010 – ... of White in the diagram position was obvious, yet with 24...Qb6 Black had produced the double threat 25...Bxa3 and 25...Nxe5 26.Bxe5 Rxe5. How would you assess the position now? A) White can win material; B) he is optically better, but there is nothing concrete; C) looks are deceptive, the first player is on the defence. The solution is here, but first ponder over it with a  larger version of the diagram.
