  plang: One of the ideas of 4 d3 is to answer
4..b5 with 5 e4..bxc 6 e5 with advantage to white. 5..b5!? is a quite sharp alternative to the normal 5..Nc6. 6 e4 was new; 6 0-0 had been played previously. 9 d4! was the logical play to take advantage of the awkward placement of the black pieces. Ivanchuk felt that 10..h5 11 Nxc4..Bd5 was a necessity for black. 11..Nh6 12 Bxd5..exd 13 dxc would have been awful for black. Ivanchuk called 15..Nxd4 the decisive mistake; he recommended 15..Qc8 as a tougher defense.
