  plang: In de Firmian-Kagan 1986 US Championship Black played 11..Be7 and Black went on to win; 11..Bb8 was new. Black got into trouble after 20..Qh4? when White had good compensation for the pawn after 25 Rfe1; Piket recommended 20..Nxe2+ 21 Rxe2..Qf7 22 Nxf8..Qh5 23 h3..Qxe2 24 Ne6..Nxf2 25 Rxf2..Qxe6 26 Qg5..Be5 as a much better choice. 25 h3?! (25 Qb1) and 32 Qe3?! were inaccuracies after which White's compensation was unclear. In time pressure Black blundered with 34..Rd7?; 34..Ne6 would have maintained a Black edge. 38..b5? was a second error. The ensuing endgame was bad for Black though most probably would have played on longer.
