  tpstar: 9. a4 is an uncommon sideline in the Ruy Lopez Open, best met with 9 ... b4 or 9 ... Rb8. Note 9 ... b4 10. a5 Be7?? 11. Ba4 1-0 Alekhine vs J Ganzo, 1944 so Black chose 10 ... Nc5 here, then had active Queenside play. Strange to see Ljubojevic mated.

jbfdma2000-tpstar0 (Yahoo 5/25/05): 9. a4 Rb8 (9 ... b4) 10. ab ab 11. Ra6!? Qd7 12. Nbd2 Nc5 13. Ra1 Nxb3 14. Nxb3 Be7 15. Be3 0-0 16. Nc5 Bxc5 17. Bxc5 Rfe8 18. Ng5 h6 19. Nxe6 fxe6 20. f4 Nd8 21. Qd3 Nb7 22. Qd4 Qc6 23. b4 Ra8 24. Rfb1 Ra4 25. Rxa4 bxa4 and Black won (0-1).
