  FSR: Ivanchuk's stunning conception with 5...Nf6! (5...Nc6 had been usual), 10...Rc8! and 11...d5!! was a very important theoretical novelty that busts this line as a winning attempt for White.
Dec-09-07  acirce: Yes, but nothing of that was new. Har-Zvi had already played everything including 11..d5 against Rublevsky in 1993; a game that does not appear to show up in databases. Ivanchuk told Har-Zvi that he had followed that game.

  offramp: I find it amazing that Ivanchuk was aware of the Har-Zvi game. Modern preparation has to be so far-reaching.
