  FSR: Maybe 11.Kd1, as in Baklan vs Ftacnik, 1998, busts this line?

  FSR: To answer my own question - no, according to Houdini 3 Black is fine after 11.Kd1 Rb8 or 11...Rd8 (as Ftacnik played).
Mar-16-18  Ovy: 14.Rd1 might be a try to avoid quick draw. Although I have a feeling that black can still force it.
