It's National Book Week on Facebook. The rules: grab the closest book to you, go to page 56, & copy the 5th sentence as your status. Don't cite the book; post these rules.

Well, I do love books, but in general I'm not one to follow Facebook exhortations. Just for the halibut I'm doing to dump this here:

An alternative is 14 Ba3, e.g., 14...Rb8 15 c5 d5 16 c6 bxc6 17 Qb4 Bf6 18 Qc5! Ng7 (18...cxb5? 19 Nxd5) 19 bxc6 Ne6 20 Qa5 Nxc6, when Valdes claims a clear plus for White after 21 Qa4, but 21 Qxd5! is even stronger.
