Often Black's downfall is caused by a weakness of e6 or g6 or both.
Beliavsky vs Larsen, 1981,
Deep Blue vs Kasparov, 1997,
Van der Wiel vs Karpov, 1987,
Kasparov vs Karpov, 1988,
Kavalek vs Huebner, 1979.
This is one of the earliest examples.

Black should have been trying to castle kingside as quickly as possible. But he played 11....h6 and he then found that his world was rocked by 12. Rxe6+!+-.

It occured as recently as A Muzychuk vs D Charochkina, 2016, which was a blitz game that White won; also (women again, oddly) in T Gara vs M Socko, 2016. That was a draw. So people still play the way M Grinberg played at least for 9 moves.
