  plang: 12 a3 was a new move; 12 g4 has been played a few times. Perhaps 13..Rc8 would have been more prudent holding onto his light squared bishop. After 20 e6! White had a clear edge. Shirov recommended as a better defense 35..Re1+ 36 Kf5..Re3 37 Bf6+..Ke8 38 Rf2 though White is still clearly better here.
