White to play
Today we're back both to our cutting-off theme and to my theoretical battle with the Novag Super Expert.
This position is drawn with best play. With the defending king well placed, as it is here, cutting-off by one file just isn't enough. Still, as we'll see, the Super Thing didn't put up the stiffest resistance and I managed to sneak a win anyway.
The question is, how do you improve Black's play? Specifically, at what point does the objective evaluation change from '=' to '+-'?
