  plang: 9..h6 is a standard prophylactic when White plays 9 Bd3. But in this game with White playing the quieter 9 Be2 Fine's 9..h6?1 was unnecessary and after 10 Ne5 White was better. 11 Qa4?! helped Black though; better was 11 0-0 daring Black to take the pawn with 11..Bxd6. 16 Qc6? accomplished nothing apparently underestimating 16..e5. 18 Bb2?! misplaced the bishop and 20 dxe? led to a very poor endgame; 20 Nd2 was better. Fine's technique was admirable from that point on.
