Originally posted by 64squaresofpainit was a clash of wills. Its an interesting line that Gelfand chose, for although his kingside ends up like a swiss cheese, in compensation, whites usual plan of castling queenside and pawn storming the kingside is severely curtailed because black gets real control of e5. I thought 21...Rfc8 was a brilliant move, if white takes the knight on e5, it gets really dangerous for him,
lol what was up with their moves 6 to 8? Psychology attempts maybe?
