  plang: 6 h3 is rarely played but is a reaonable way to avoid more theoretical lines and was used by Krasenkov on several occasions. 8 g4 prevents the continuation 8..e5 9 d6..Nh5. Krasenkov criticized 10..Ndc5?! as premature recommending 10..Kg8 11 Qd2..Ndc5 instead. After the game Smirin characterized 16..f5?! as "suicidal". Krasenkov discovered later that he had reached this position previously against the Philippine player Notte at Manila 1995 who had played the more catious 16..Qe7. Black's two offside knights proved to be quite a disadvantage once the position opened up. Losing would have been 22..Bh6 23 Bxf5..Rxf5 24 Rg4..Bxd2+ 25 Rxd2..Qh6 26 b5..Nb8 27 Nxd6..Rxf2 28 Nce4. 28..Nxd2 would have been answered by 29 Bf5.
Dec-18-11  King Death: This system isn't bad at all, even though I remember Schiller writing a dismissive comment about it after this game: Kavalek vs Kasparov, 1982.
