Just thought I'd mention that I was reminded of this thread by John Watson's new update, which looks at a couple of games along these lines.

One thing I noticed was that ECO gave line C as leading to equality after 14...Be8 15. Rfe1 (Bronstein-Zita 1946 -- not long after that game, Fine cited it in calling this line ±) Rac8.

7...c5 8.dxc5 (8.Be3!? Vitiugov) Qa5+ 9.c3 Qxa5 10.Qe2 Be7 11.Bg5  (Azarov-Altinsoy,Istanbul 2006 ; Osnos-Barcza,Leningrad 1967 (Suetin)

7...Be7 8.Bg5 oo 9.Qe2 c5 10.dxc5 Qa5+ 11.c3 Qxc5 

12.oo 

A) 12...h6 13.Be3 Qc7 14.Bd4  the idea of positioning bishop is same than in variation : 7..c5 8.Be3!? (Vitiugov) cxd4 9.cxd4 Qa5+ 10.c3  += Ponomariov-Anastasian,Aeroflot 2005

B) 12...Bd7 13.Bxf6 Bxf6 14.Bxh7+ Kxh7 15.Qd3+ Kg8 16.Qxd7 Azarov-Altinsoy,Istanbul 2006

C) 12...Rd8 (one common move in the Tarrasch with c5) 13.Rad1 Bd7 (13..h6 14.Bh4 b6 15.Nd4 +=) 14.Ne5 

For more aggressive plans: 8.c3!? or 8.Qe2 Capablanca-Chajes,NewYork 1918 (Daubar) or Gomez Baillo-van Reimsjik,Buenos Aires 1990 (Psakhis) White avoids c3 and use main plan ooo

I notice that 12. 0-0-0 Rd8 13. Ne5 += was given by Keres, and Psakhis cited a game in which 12...g6 led to "a fierce attack" for White.

And suddenly I had to think a lot..I managed to get advantage in the game but its was only due to my opponents mistakes...I want to ask Which is the best line from here or has Black managed to equalize here ??
