23. Nxb7 Rxb7 24. Ne3 and the pawn on c4 falls.[/QUOTE]Right-o.

I forgot that just as soon as Black plays [U]either[/U] 22 ... Nc8 [U]or[/U] [B]22 ... Nd5[/B], his N/c6 has only one defender. In the latter case, his N/d5 is the shield not only for his N/c6, but also for his R/b7.

(Well, at least I included the qualifier.)

So, is
[b]21 ... Bc8[/b]
now the main line?
