That looks logical enough for me, the bishop on e6 seems to be acting as a fulcrum of the d5/c4 and g6/f5 pawn complexes after 21 Nf4 Nxf4 22. Rxf4 g6. Then I suppose play will centre around the plan of ...b4 and ...c3, trying to create a passed pawn and perhaps if b-pawns are exchanged, ...Rb8 with the idea of ...Rb2 to support the passed pawn.

Creo lo que creo no importa lo que creen los demás.

Tarrasch defence - GM Repertoire 10

Aagaard and Ntirlis base their Tarrasch defence repertoire for a good deal on the little move ...h6!?

In chapter 5 they propose 9.Bg5 c4 10.Ne5 Be6 11.f4 h6! and claim that after 12.Bh4 Ng4 the line is viable compared to the normal line (without 11...h6 12.Bh4).

About the position after the further 13.Nxg4 Bxg4 14.Bxe7 Nxe7 15.h3 Be6 16.g4?! f5! 17.e3 Qd7 18.g5 hxg5 19.fxg5 b5 20.Ne2 Ng6 21.Nf4 they say it is equal.

How should Black continue in this position? Take on f4, play g6 and then proceed on the queenside (pawn majority)?
