  plang: Game 4 of a 10 game match- Tkachiev won games 2,3 and 4 and cruised to a 5-1 win (4 draws). 15..Rd8 was a new move in this super-sharp variation; 15..Bc5 had been played in Gelfand-Shirov Linares 1997 (drawn). Giving up the exchange with 21..Rxg3!? did not slow White's initiative but the alternative 21..Bxa3 would not have helped after 22 Rc7..Qb6 23 Rxb5!..Bxb5 24 Bxb5..Rd8 25 Qc4 with multiple threats. After 33 Nh4! Tkachiev was winning. Tkachiev's 35 Nf8 was stronger than 35 Qf8+..Kc7 Rc1..fxg which would have given Black counterplay. 35..Re7 36 Qxf6 would have been very strong for White; Black's choice lost much more quickly.
