  plang: The game started as a Taimanov and then transposed into a Scheveningen. Grischuk described 18..Re5?! as "too greedy" instead recommending 18..Ne5 19 Rxf4..Be6 with equality. In the draw Geller - A.Sokolov Soci 1983 (not included in this database) White had played 19 Rxf4. Grischuk's 19 Qd2 was an improvement. 23..Rxg3 24 Qxg3..Kh8 25 Qf3 would have been powerful for White. With 26..Bc6! Black indicated that it was worth it to give up the exchange rather than give up the b-pawn. 29..g5 would have been an improvement. Black blundered with 32..Nc5?; after 32..Ne5 Whites' advantage would have been quite small. 37..Be7 might have held out a bit longer.
