Sep-03-04  Knight13: 12. Qd4!! Cool.
Sep-29-06  CrystalFrost: Its not that actually,it is 9...h5(?) cause it simply a loss of tempo and it is clear that a strong attack against the White king is very hard.

  OhioChessFan: h5 is an incredibly bad and pointless move. Sort of like my efforts for White in GTM. Although I think -2 for 7. Bb5 was pretty harsh.

  fearlessone: Thought ed5 if Nxd5 qxd5 Qxd5 Nxc7+ and Nxd5. After 12 exd5 Bd7 is the big problem. After 12. exd5 c6? dxc6 bxc6 Nc7+ And same after 12. ed6 Nxc6 either one and nc7+ next.

Well, 9...h5 is not utterly pointless move. Black intended to play Qg6 but then white can play Bh5. 9...h5 just prevents it. The Pawn is taboo for 10.Bxh5 Qh4 -+. Black's mistake was 10...Qb6?? Khasin was expecting 10...Bxe3 11.Nxc7+ Kd8 12.fxe3 Qh4 13.Nxa8 Ng4 with attack of black, and he did not like there 14.h3 Qg3 15.Bxg4 hxg4, though 16.Qe1 solves all white's problems. But after 10...Bd6 black's game is playable. 9...0-0 is now standard continuation.
