  plang: 10 Re1 was an idea of I.Sokolov that he first played against Van Wely in the 1995 Dutch Championship. It quickly became the main line. One of the ideas is to answer 10..Nf4 with 11 Bf1. In this game it led to Bologan changing plans and bringing his king knight back to d7. 17..Nf6?! led to a strong White initiative; Seirawan recommended the waiting moves ...Kh8 and ...Ng8 as an alternative plan. If 24..f4 then 25 Bg4..e3 26 Bh4..Qd6 27 Bxc8..Rxc8 28 Qg4 and White can countersacrifice on e3 and then attack on the g-file. After 26 Ra2! the response 26..f3 would have been answered by 27 Bf1..fxg 28 Rxg2 and White is much better.
