The b6-pawn remains very weak but this is counterbalanced by the vulnerability of the e4-pawn - the position is more or less equal. txb6 :c8 28 :c 1 ! d3 tl:Jf6 6 0-0 'ikc7 7 fie2 d6 8 c4 g6 9 tl:Jc3 �g7 1 0 f4 Raw aggression! What happens if White goes for glory on the kingside against Black's solid structure? It must be said that 1 0 . . 0-0 1 1 tl:Jf3 White retreats the knight for kingside operations and prepares a possible e4-e5.
