  plang: 10..Bf5 and 10..Be6 are the main lines; 10..b6 was a new idea which was fashionable for awhile but which has never achieved the popularity of the other two moves. Kasparov avoided the obvious 16 c4 because he was concerned about the sacrifice 16..Qh5 17 d5..Bd6!? 18 dxc..Rxe1+ 19 Qxe1..Bxc6 (the game was played in the 3rd round; after the game Kasparov found 20 Be2 which is fine for White; in the tenth (last) round he played 16 c4 against Anand). Kasparov had only 12 minutes left when he accepted Hramnik's draw offer; he later thought the complications after 19 Qa4 would have been favorable for White including the piece sacrifice after 19..Qa8 20 d5..Na5 21 Bxh6!?.
