  plang: Svidler's 13 Qd2!? is the most popular move though Seirawan thinks it is a serious positional errorfeeling that 13 Nxc5 is practically forced. The whole line with 10 Nd5 has not scored well for White. Polgar gave White's best defense as 21 b4..Nxd3 22 Qxd3..Qc7 with a small Black edge; instead after 21 Qb5? Black was clearly better. Had Svidler played 26 Bxb6 Polgar could have answered with 26..Nxb6 27 Qxb5..Qg5! threatening both 28..Rxc2 and 28..Qh5. Polgar's response to 31 Bxb6 would have been 31..Nxf6 32 c4..Qg6 and if 33 c5 then 33..f3 34 Qc6..fxg 35 Bxg2..Nh5.
