  KingG: Great game by Kamsky. He had Black under pressure early on, and never let up.

Black's 'Meran style' play on the Q-side doesn't seem to work as well with White's dark squared bishop outside the pawn chain.

Yeah, 20.Nc6 was already suggested shortly after the Fischer-Spassky game (e.g., in Gligoric's book) as a better follow-up to Fischer's novelty of 19.Be4 than Fischer's own 20.Bg3; and it's been tried in Pinter vs A Martin, 1984 as well, where White didn't achieve much after 24.Rfd1.

Salov's first serious mistake was probably 24...Nxc6, which allows Kamsky to mangle his K-side pawns; instead, after 24...Nxe4 followed by 25...Rd8 Black seems to be in reasonable shape. Later, 29...Bxb2 was probably better than Bc7 - not so much to grab a pawn as to leave the bishop on the long diagonal. 29...Bc7 diffuses the threat of f5, but after 30.Be1! the new threat of Bc3 becomes lethal in many lines (for example, that's the point of 33.h3 - to allow Bc3 without worrying about Rd1+).
