This move forced an opponent's piece to move and blocked an ongoing attack. However, it ignored a better opportunity to create a superior threat and missed the chance to enhance bishop mobility. Despite this, the queen on c1 is now well-defended and actively contributes to White's play. Yet, it overlooked the need for better protection of an underdefended piece and allowed Black to kick one of White's pieces. Additionally, Qc1 missed the opportunity to develop another piece more effectively.
