  plang: The sharp 17..f5!? has become a popular line which is surprising to me because the kingside light squares are quite vulnerable for Black. What is even more surprising is that Karpov used this line on several occasions against Kasparov. In Aseev-Solozenkin St Petersburg 1995 (White won) Black played 20..Nf6; 20 ..Re5!? was new. When playing 22 Qe2 Ehlvest had forseen the exchange sacrifice 26 Nxd6!. Acs thought White would have had only a small edge after 29..Nf6! 30 gxf..Qxf6 31 Qh5..Bxd6 32 Qxd5..Rd8 33 Qe4..Kg8; instead after 29..Bxf3 White's attack was too strong. Black lost quickly after 32..Nf3+; a tougher defense was 32..Rxd6 though White would likely have prevailed in the long run.
