  Pyke: According to Alexei Shirov Malaniuk was one of the main contributers and proponents of the Archangelsk variation of the Ruy Lopez.

Looking at his games in this variation it, he seemed to handle it quite well.

  wordfunph: "The simple strategy of attacking your opponent's pieces and creating threats on every move has a cumulative effect. In 5-6 moves it reaches a critical mass and brings about the collapse of his defense."
