  plang: 10 Bf4 was first played by Bronstein against Taimanov in 1961. Unfortunately for black a tempo has to be spent with 11..h6 to prevent Bg5 (ie if 11..0-0 12 Rad1..e5 13 Bg5 followed by Bxf6 and Nd5). Sutovsky pointed out that 17..Ra8 loses by force. The best defence would have been 17..b5 18 Nc3..Qc5+ 19 Kh1..b4 20 fxe..dxe 21 Nd5 though white would still have been clearly better. Polgar may have underestimated 20 Rf3!. If 20..Bg4 then 21 Rc3..Bxd1 22 Rxc6..Rxc6 23 Bf1!..Bc2 24 Bb5 leads to a winning advantage.
