  plang: 5 Nc3 would have transposed into the Vienna variation; 5 Nbd2!? (5 Bd2?!..Be7 makes no sense for White) avoids mainline theory. 7..b5 had been played in Misanovic-Bojkovic Kishinev 1995 (game not included in this database); 7..c6 was new. 11..e5 12 Bxc4..exd 13 0-0! followed by Rae1 would have been dangerous for Black. 16 Rfd1? allowed Black to activate his knight; better was 16 Rfc1. It was unclear why White invited the exchange of queens with 17 Qd6?! as the endgame was good for Black with a queenside majority and a weak White a-pawn. After 26 Be2? White was lost; a tougher defense was 26 f4..Nxc4 27 bxc..Rb8 28 Rd1..Rb4 29 c5..Rc4 30 Rb7..Rxc5 31 Ra7 with some drawing chances.
