  plang: 15 Bf4 and 15 Ng3 are interesting alternatives making it more difficult for Black to achieve ..d5. 17 f3..Bc5 18 Be3..Nc4 19 fxe..dxe 20 Bxe4..Nxe3 21 Nxe3..Rxd4 22 Qc2..Rc4 23 Qd3..Bb7 would have been promising for Black. 21 Bc2 had been played in Saulin-Notkin Moscow 1996 (game not included in this database) 21 Qd3 was new but Black already appears to be better in any case. 25 Qe2? was a serious error; better was 25 fxe..Bxe4 26 Qd2..Bxc2 27 Kh1..Be4 28 Ng4..Be7 29 Rf1..Qg6 30 Nf6+..Kf8 31 Rac1..Ra6 with some advantage for Black. Bologan, in turn, missed the immediately winning 25..Bxe3 26 Qxe3..d4 27 Qd3..Ng3 28 Qd2..d3+ 29 Qf2..Qxf2+ 30 Kxf2..d2!. White did not take advantage of this opportunity erring again with 26 Bxe4?; instead 26 fxe..Bg6 27 Nd5!..Rxd5 28 Bd3 would have been sufficient for equality. The resulting position would have been very strong for Black due to the passed e-pawn. With 35 Be1 White gave up the exchange trying to set up a blockade. White resigned due to 52 Be4..Bxe4 53 fxe..Qd3 54 Kg2..g4 55 hxg..hxg.
