  plang: 8..Bb6 gives back the pawn rather than allowing white to gain time with o-o and Rd1 after 8..dxe. 9 Nbd2 was new; 9 Bb5 had been played previously. Short pointed out that 23 Nd5? was a mistake which would have lost a pawn if Huebner had answered with 23..Qa7. Missing this opportunity perhaps Huebner should have tried 27..Nc4 with complications. After 28 Nxe5 Short had the better structure and the initiative which ultimately led to the win of a pawn.
Dec-22-10  sneaky pete: The novelty 9.Nbd2 .. was unashamedly plagiarised in M Barker vs W Marshall, 1951 nearly half a century earlier.
