  plang: 12 a3 is an established line but looks awfully slow particularly after Dominguez's 12..Qb6, 13..Rc8 and 14..Rxc3!. 18 Qg3?! was a further wast of time; better was 18 Bd2..Na4 19 g4..d5 20 g5..Nxe4 21 Bxe4..dxe 22 g6 (threatening 23 Qxh7) 22..Bf6 (or 22..h6) with some edge for Black.

If you are going to play 6 Bg5 I think you have to play sharper chess than this.
