  plang: Zvjagincev likes to go his own way; he had introduced the combination of 4 Be3 and 5 Hd2 a few months earlier against Sargissian. The game quickly transposed into one of the 4 c3 lines with White's actual innovation being 7 b4.

Zvjagincev after 16 Bd2:
"The position has clarified. Black appears to have an acceptable game, but on closer examination it transpires that his position is altogether unpromising: White has the two bishops, Black's minor pieces have no moves on account of the restricting White pawn on b4, and any opening of the position will reveal the weakness of the black king in general, and of the e6 pawn in particular. White's plan is simple - Bd3 and Qc2, and then either c3-c4 and g2-g4."

After 25..Kg7? Black quickly lost; better was 25..Nc5 26 Bxg6..fxg 27 Qxg6+..Kh8 28 Rf3..Ra1+ 29 Kf2..Bh4+ 30 Ke2..dxc where White has nothing better than a perpetual check. Zvjagincev suggested (as a response to 25..Nc5) 26 Bb4..Qd7 27 Bxc5..Bxc5 28 cxd..Qxd5 29 h4 with decent winning chances.
