  plang: White usually doesn't try to hold on to the extra pawn with 10 0-0 as Black gets good counterplay. In the draw Van der Weil-Kurajica Pula 1997 White played 12 Be3; 12 Bd2 was new. 14 Bf5..d4 15 Bxc8..Rxc8 16 Qxc8+..Rxc8 17 Ne2..Nb4 would have been good for Black. White avoided 32 Qxh6 due to 32..Nd5 and if 33 Qg5 then 33..Ba3! would have given Black a powerful attack. The game was even until Black erred with 34..Re4? allowing 35 Rxb7+!. 35..Kxb7 36 Qxc5+ would have held out longer though White would have had a strong initiative; instead after 35..Qxb7? Black was mated with the pretty 38 Bb8+!.
