  plang: In Anand-Ribli 1990 Novi Sad Olympiad Black played 18..Bxg5 and lost quickly; 18..g6 was new and was an improvement. After 20 Bd4? Black started taking over the initiative; Grischuk recommended 20 Nf3..Qxa4 21 21 f5..exf 22 Bh6..dxe 23 Bxf8..Bxf8 24 Nxe5..Nf6 with unclear play. 32..Qa5? let White back into the game; better was 32..Qc4 with the idea of 33 Nxe6..h4 34 Qg5..fxe 35 Qxg6..Qc6 36 Rf3..Qe8 and Black is clearly better.

Played in the 1st round at Linares which was a 6 player double round robin; these 2 players finished at -1 in a 5 way tie for 2nd-6th a full 3 points behind Kasparov.
