  plang: 5..Bd6 is an interesting sideline covered by Bosch in New in Chess in one of his SOS (Secrets of Opening Surprises) columns. Pillsbury had used it successfully twice at Hastings 1895. 9 Nbd2 had been played three most recently in Sermek-Mikhalchishin BLED 2002 won by Black; 9 Nh4 was new but does not appear to be an improvement. 14 Bb5 and 14 Bf1 were suggested as improvements but, in any case, White's position was not promising.; he is behind in development and a pawn down. 18 Qb5 seems illogical but it is hard to find a promising alternative. White missed a combination that would have given him better drawing chances: 28 cxb..axb 29 Nxb6!..Nxb6 30 Ba5..Rd3! 31 Nxb6..Rxa3. White's chances went downhill quickly after 36 a4?.
