  Domdaniel: The Chistyakov Variation of the Tarrasch French (...Qxd5 rather than ...exd5) is highly theoretical and can be very sharp. I've played it sporadically for the past couple of years, but was thinking of trying another line -- this game has persuaded me to stick with it.

  perfidious: <Dom> So it can--here is a game from another subvariation of 10....a6 which was heavily analysed and played at the time: Wolff vs Gulko, 1992.

  Domdaniel: <perf> Yep, I'm familiar with the ...Rd8 line. One of my favourite games is Zaw Win Lay vs Khalifman, 2000 -- Khalifman, before this game, wondered how strong the new GMs from Burma/Myanmar such as Zaw Win Lay really were... he had risen quickly up the rankings, seemingly without playing many non-Burmese GMs.

The game followed a suggestion of Korneev's, which had a fatal flaw (and suggested that maybe Zaw placed too much credence in book-learnin'):

< To date, Oleg Korneev's move had scored two wins in grandmaster games. Khalifman shows it has just one small drawback: it loses instantly>
