  plang: Gelfand, primarily a d4 player, here varied with 1 e4. 9 f4 and 9 f3 are the main lines; Gelfand's 9 Nxc6 is a rarely played sideline. 12..Rc8 was new; 12..Qc7 had been played previously. 18..Qe7? was too slow; better would have been 18..Qa5 19 Qf2..Rf8 20 Rf1..Qc5 21 Rxf7..Qxf2 22 R7xf2..Rxf2 23 Rxf2..Ke7 with good chances to hold with the two bishops. Why not 19..0-0? 22..Rg8 would have been a better defense. 25 Nxh7+..Rxh7 26 Bxh7..f5 would have been unclear. 25..Bc6 would have been more stubborn. Black could have waited passively with 31..Bf6 32 a5 but it would not have changed the final result.
