The Lindores Abbey tournament

Lawrence: "The game I will analyse is the game Ding-Yu, game 1 match 2, a beautiful display by China's number 1 of how to play against the Queen’s Gambit Accepted."

But first a little warm-up: the diagram shows a position from Carlsen-So, Game 1, Match 1. Here Black played the move 19...Rc8, but was this a clever move by So? How should the World Champion reply?
