The natural move...

9/25/2009 – ... is a continuation which immediately springs to mind in a position - if, for example, a piece can be developed to an active square in the opening with tempo. In the diagram, playing 16.Rad1 White occupied the d-file with his rook and at the same time attacked the opponent's queen. What is your judgement on this? A) simple and strong, the move maintains a powerful initiative; B) here nature is against White, Black gets the advantage;  C) neither nor, with a precise reaction the position is kept in balance. The solution is here, but first ponder over it with a larger version of the diagram.
