I think I've seen other Kotov games with a similar structure of 8 blocked pawns.

Jan-10-11  Mr37: According to Pacman 40.. Nxh5 41 Rh3 Nf4 42 Rxh6 Qe7 Black owns the h file and wins. He says that black wisely swung his king to the queenside to avoid the kingside attack. He argues that the only thing that saved white were the fine tactics culminating in Bxg5, but otherwise black game was better.
