  perfidious: Old friend Joel Johnson scores a crushing brevity in his old favourite 7.f5 after his strong, experienced opponent incautiously accepts the pawn.

The improvement 10....h5 was tried in this game, T Shadrina vs A Bodnaruk, 2008, though somehow it hardly seems convincing; better to play 7....Nge7 and avoid this morass altogether!
