May-27-04  ConLaMismaMano: why not 10.Ng8/Nd7?
Jun-25-05  waddayaplay: I don't know, but it has never been played according to the opening explorer...
Jul-02-05  hippatxu: About 10. ..♘fd7 I found only one game: <Medina Macias - Palacios Díaz 1-0 , PanAmaerican Ch. Amateur 2001> that follows 11.♗c4,♘b6 12.♗b3,♘c6 13.♕h5,♙d5 14.♗b6,♕b6 15.♘d5,♕a5+ 16.♙c3,♗f5 17.♘f6+,♔d8 18.♕f7,♗d6 19.♗e6 but play can be improved in both sides imho. Probably 11.♘e5,♗e7/♗g7 12.♙f6 is a better line for white here and against 10. ..♘g8 11.♙f6 seems to give white a sufficient compensation for the piece and a promising attack.
Jul-26-05  AdrianP: 10... Nfd7:

11. Qd5 Nb6 12. Qb3 N8d7 13. O-O-O looks quite promising for White as well.

Nov-12-05  Karpova: if i remember it right, 18.f6+ was the novelty and 20....qc6 the decisive mistake (qb6 should have been played covering the f2-pawn)
Jan-01-06  Whitehat1963: Crushing defeat!
Oct-03-08  Xeroxx: Haha sharp game :_D
Mar-27-13  vinidivici: This Keres variation similar with some of other games, but the tactical shots are about the same.

This one also consistent with the principles about the line that i have written on this game:

Timman vs J Smeets, 2006

Good game anyway

Mar-27-13  RookFile: Svidler is always well prepared for the openings.
Mar-28-13  vinidivici: <ConLaMismaMano: why not 10.Ng8/Nd7?>

I have given the general outline about this in the game Timman vs Smeets, 2006, you can click in my post above.

Hope its useful.

  plang: Svidler had some experience with the Black side of the Perenyi Attack (7 g4) but this was the first time he had played it with White. 14..exf had first been played in the sharp draw Shirov J.Polgar Dortmund 1996. 18 Nd6 had been played in a few quick play games at Monaco; 18 f6+ was new. Gelfand erred with 20..Qc6?; Svidler's analysis had identified 20..Qb6 as best (the difference being that on b6 the queen covers d8 so that 22..Bh6 is not possible). A few weeks after this game at Polanica Zdroj Svidler had the opportunity to play 20..Qb6 against Almasi and won after a tough struggle. 26..Nf6? lost quickly; better was 26..Rg8 27 Qh5+..Rg6 28 Nxg6..Be3+ 29 Kb1..hxg 30 Qf3 though this should eventually win for White as well.
