  plang: 15..Ne4 in the supersharp Noteboom line was new and quite logical holding up White's e4 advance. 20 e4? would have been premature due to 20..fxe 21 fxe..Ng4 22 g3..Rf2 23 Re2..Raf8 24 Qg5..Qf7 25 Qxg4..Rf1+ winning the exchange. The break 22 e4?! did not work out well; 22 Ra4 or 22 Qc2 are alternatives after which White is certainly no worse. 26..Qxc5+ 27 Bd4..Qe7 28 d6 may be playable for Black but is riskier than Krasenkov's 26..exd. Stohl thought that White's best defense would have been 30 Reb1 with at least some drawing chances; after Sadler's 30 c7?!..Rfc1, however, 31 Reb1 would have led to a losing endgame after 31..Qxd5 32 exd..Kf7 33 d6..Ke6 34 Rd1..Kd7 35 Ra3..Ra6 36 Kf2..Rxd6 37 Rxd6+..Kxd6 38 Rxa4..Rxc7 39 Rb4..Rc2+.
