  plang: Adams likes to play offbeat lines aganst the sicilian. 6 g3 isn't played very often but it is a reasonable attempt to avoid standard theory. 7..Bg7 offers an interesting exchange sacrifice. Adams turns it down. Dreev probably should have played 21..Ne3 while he had the chance. His drawing chances seem much less after that. 24 Ba7 is a clever move. Not sure why Dreev didn't play 36..Kc3. It couldn't have hurt.
