    I like grabbing the exchange.
    13. Re1 is allowing deadly binding.

    With 13. f3 you secure returning place for your Knight on e4. It looks so blunt and "too obvious", though.

    You could also force Queen-exchange at the price of one Pawn with 13. Qf3 and then try to cash extra exchange in in the ending.

    13. Bf4 was my first impulse, but it requires calculation.

    I have to go out but quickly here (Black to play)



    You have got a reversed Rossolimo v The Sicilian (3.Bb5) a tempo
    up, here an annoying move is 3.Na4 with a3 and b4 ideas.

    Play it like a Sicilian reversed (a6 is always a handy and often
    good move in the Sicilian. You get in a3 with tempo) .
    Just a quick idea, not seen the whole game.

    27. g4 was criminal. Freezes your own K-side pawns.

    29. Rxd5 etc. was better than Rc5

    There are simply too many inaccuracies to comment, but, for the first time,
    white could have played much better with 3. Nd5.
    If 3...Be7 4.Ne7 almost wins the game for white, I have analysed this extensively, the pair of bishops are decisive here.
    If 3...Bc5/a5, then 4.b4 wins you a precious tempo.
    The much better way to meet the English is 1...c5, the Symmetrical, as Fischer knew very well.
