Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-11-05  azaris: Gary Lane recommends this sharp line with an early h7-h5 in his book <Ideas Behind Modern Chess Openings: Black>. See also:

Geller vs Kholmov, 1964
Korchnoi vs Short, 1990
S Cvetkovic vs Topalov, 1991
F Berkes vs Acs, 2004

According to Lane, here already after the unnecessary retreat 9. ♘e2?! White is worse.

Jul-24-12  Everett: If my opponent plays the kings N to any other square than f3 or f6, then the h-pawn push is on. It is a simple and sound way to weaken the fianchetto position. Here, e3, blocking White's DSB from the k-side, makes ...h5 and ..h6 even more effective.
