  Chessical: Despite facing a very solid defence, Kupchik believes that he has an opportunity to blast his way to his opponent's king, but his combination is flawed.

Kupchik attacks with only his Queen developed but overlooks <17...Nc6!> blocking his path to winning a Rook. If he takes the Knight his Queen is lost after Bxh2+.

<18...Rd8!!> is decisive.

A more successful use of this solid variation is: B Abramovic vs Matulovic, 1996

  bharat123: 21.Bh4 is a blunder loosing the bishop. 21. Be5 instead loses a pawn and black can comfortably win the ending.

It's much worse than just a pawn. After <21...Nxe5 22.dxe5>

Black doesn't bother with small potatoes, but plays <22...c3!>, Now the rook is attacked, while Black also has the threat of 23...c2 trapping the night. If 23.Rv1 cxb2 forks the rooks. .
