  Everett: 20...b4 is a powerful novelty! Nice in-betweener.
Dec-17-20  offramp: <Hesam7: Black used 6 minutes for the entire game!!> I can imagine that, because the moves up to 19. N2f3 were played in Kasparov vs Karpov, 1986.

After 19...Nd3!N White played the normal
20. Bxd3. But how about 20. Rxd3? No one ever seems to have tried that.

This long variation spawned this excellent game: Lagno vs L'Ami, 2006
