  plang: 5 h3 system seems like a good alternative to the Samisch. It doesn't weaken the kingside as much. Beliavsky and Yermolinsky have scored well with it. Impressed with the way that Beliavsky delays castling and developing kings bishop in order to accelerate Q side attack.
Dec-21-16  zanzibar: OK, don't look, but can you spot White's crusher here:

(White to move after 34...Qf7xd5)

5r2 /Q1p3bk/2Np2p1/3qpb1p/1P2N3/3B1p2/2KB1P2/7R w - - 0 35

Let me get just one line:

35.Ne7 Qd4 36.Ng5+ Kh6 37.Ng8+ Rxg8 38.Nf7+ Kh7 39.Rxh5+ Bh6 etc.

You did see all those forcing moves allowing the queen to be left hanging, right?

(Black to move after 19.c6)

Black originally, and conclusively, goes wrong at move 19, by playing 19...bxc6 and opening the Q-side for White (vs. 19...b6, which closes the position and should hold).
