  plang: Interesting line with the three black pawns providing reasonable compensation for the bishop. Seirawan was critical of 14..f6 for weakening black's center recommending 14..Nxd5 or 14..Qa5+ instead. Karpov, however, considers 14..f6 to be the main line. 15..Kf7 was new. The odd looking 15..Kd7 had been played previously and is still considered by Karpov to be the stronger move. Seirawan questioned 17..d4 saying black should strive to keep the position closed with 17..Bc5 instead (17..a6 looks playable as well). 19..fxg? played into white's hands (19..c2, 19..f5 and 19..a6 were alternatives). 22 Rh4? lost a critical tempo; 22 Bh3 would have led to a winning attack. Wild middlegame: if 27..Qxg3? 28 Bd5+..Rf7 29 Bxf7+..Kf8
30 Nce6#. If 34..c1Q 35 Be6+..Kf8
36 Rf7+..Ke8 37 Bd7+..Kd8 38 Ne6#.
