  plang: The line with 8..e4 is a relatively new line that has not scored well for Black. 11 Qxb7?..Rb8 12 Qa6..exf 13 Nxf3..Nxd4 14 Qxd6..Nc2+ would have been very good for Black. 16..c6? led to the win of a pawn for White; better was 16..Rfb8 17 0-0..Nf5 18 Nxf5..Qxf5 with the idea of ..b5. 29..Bxc4 30 Qc2..gxf 31 Rxf4..Qf7 32 g5 would have been losing for Black. However, a move later raking the pawn would have been Black's best chance: 30..Bxc4 31 Bxc4..Rxc4 32 fxg..fxg 33 gxh though White would still have a clear edge. Instead, Black's attempt to complicate with 30..f5? backfired losing quickly. 32..hxg 33 h4..Qh5 34 Nd6 would have been decisive for White. Black resigned due to 35..Bxh5 36 Qf5+..Bg6 37 Qxc8.

Very interesting analysis, thanks. Didn't you skip a move at the end, though? Black resigned due to [the threat of 36. Rxh5]..Bxh5 37 Qf5+..Bg6 38 Qxc8.

  plang: According to Informant 80 White's 35th move was Rxh5+ which makes more sense.
