  plang: Two days earlier Krasenkov had played 6 Bd2 against Movsesian and Black had gone on to win. 9..0-0 is the main line; Movsesian's 9..f6!? had just been introduced a month earlier at Beijing by Dreev against Xu Jun is a short draw. Movsesian's 10..Nxf4?! 11 exf..e5 has not been repeated; 10..e5 at once is considered stronger. He apparently underestimated the powerful knight sacrifice 12 f5!. Hubner recommended 12..exd (instead of Movsesian's 12..e4) but after 13 Na4..Ne5 14 fxg..hxg 15 Nxd4 White would still have had an edge. However, the game continuation quickly led to a hopeless position for Black. Had Black tried 17..b6 White could have responded 18 fxg..hxg 19 Qf7! (stronger than 19 Nf7+).
