Firouzja, Alireza vs. Vachier-Lagrave, Maxime - Grand Chess Tour: SuperUnited Croatia Rapid & Blitz 2024 1/2-1/2

In the game between Alireza Firouzja and Maxime Vachier-Lagrave at the Grand Chess Tour: SuperUnited Croatia Rapid & Blitz 2024 on July 11, 2024, the move c6 by Firouzja with the white pieces sought to advance a pawn in a critical moment. This move was a clear attempt to create active play and potentially generate a passed pawn, indicating a strategic decision aimed at long-term positional gains rather than immediate tactical threats or development advantages. However, it did miss opportunities to directly threaten Black's position or to develop pieces in a more harmonious manner. Despite its ambitious nature, the move did not effectively improve White's position against the strong defense posed by Vachier-Lagrave.
