  plang: 14 Bg2 had first been played in Defirmian-Irzhanov in the World Team Championship in late 1997 (not in this database). Defirmian had played 16 Qh5 and won with a nice attack. Svidler admitted that this was probably stronger than his continuation 16 Qg4. In retrospect, Svidler felt after 25 c4 white was better but during the game he had less than 20 minutes. After 29..Nd7 Svidler missed the opportunity for 30 Nc6..Bxc6 31 dxc..Ne5 32 Qf2..Rb8 33 Qd2..Nxc6
34 Qxd6 with advantage. After 35 Bh3?..Na5! Svidler had lost his advantage and had to fight for a draw as his planned 36 Bd7? would have been answered with 36..Nxc4 37 Bd4..Ne5 and black is better. Kasparov missed 37..Be7! 38 Nxb7..Nxb7 39 Bb6 which would have left him with a solid advantage. For instance 39..a5 40 Bc8..Nc5 41 h4..h6 42 gxh..Bxh4 43 Bxa5..Nxg4.

Kasparov in volume two of Modern Chess series agrees with that assessment. In fact he thinks the position after 16. Qh5!

is <very dangerous for Black>.
