  plang: Opening is a hybrid of the Queens Indian (E12) and the Kasparov Nimzo Indian (E21). 8 dxc5!? invites a Black gambit with 8..Na6 which has scored very well with Black. 9 Qc2 was a new move; 9 Nd2 and 9 cxb had been played previously. White's combination starting with 16 c5 and 17 e4 resulted in a position where Black's bisop was very powerful. 23 Qb8+..Ke7 24 Qxh8..Qg4 would have been winning for Black. White lost quickly after 27 Na5?; better was 27 Qd2..Rb8 28 Nc1 when Black would still have had work to do to win the game.
