  plang: Averbakh avoided the complex, theoretical line 15 cxd..f4 16 f3..Ng3 17 hxg..fxc 18 Qd3..Bf5 19 Qxf5..Rxf5 20 Bxf5..Qh4 21 Bh3 which had been played in Smyslovs win over Reshevsky in the 1945 USSR-USA Radio Match. After the alternative capture 16 Qxd4 the sequence mentioned in the previous variation no longer is effective for Black as there is no pawn on d4 to capture. Averbakh had intended to play 19 cxb but then saw that Black could play 19..c4 and if 20 Qd4..Bf5 with a good game. Today, theory considers 20 b3! (after 19..c4) to be strong for White. In fact, Krasenkov feels that Black needs to look for improvements earlier in the line; perhaps 16..Qe7, 16..a5 or 16..c4.
