Jan-11-14  hellopolgar: This is probably only classic win of Vugar Gashimov against a player whose peak rating is 2800+.

  Domdaniel: Both play aggressively in the middlegame, but Gashimov emerges with a won ending. The opening, though, is not an "Indian Game: Anti-Nimzo-Indian" (a slightly absurd appellation). It's a Tarrasch, ie a Queen's Gambit with ...c5 by Black. The slightly unusual move order, offering transpositions into the Benoni or various Indian defences, does not make a difference.

  perfidious: <Dom> If I ever find any game scores in which I played a Modern Benoni (had two or three attacks of such foolishness), and submit them, the classification system here will have a field day, as any or all such games began 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.Nf3 c5 4.d5.

One example between two GMs who can play a little was Korchnoi vs Suba, 1984.

At least it would get the Blumenfelds right, though!
