  plang: Krasenkov aftyer 15 e5!:
"This new concept was introduced by Teimour Radjabov against Vishy Anand. White restricts the mobility of Black's knight. His further plans included either a kingside attack using his outpost on e5, a bishop swap followed by a knight sortie to d6, or a breakthrough in the centre (d4-d5). Of course, White has weakened the d5 square, but it is a price worth paying for so many benefits."

In the game mentioned above played at Linares earlier in the year Anand had played 16..Rfe8 against Radjabov and the game had been drawn; 16..Rae8 was new. 20..Qc7? was a serious error that gave White the d-file and left Black without counterplay; Black would have been OK after after 20..Qd6! 21 dxc (21 c4..cxd 22 Rx4..Qxa3) 21..Qxc5 22 c4..Ne4!. 31 f4? was an inaccuracy that gave Black drawing chances; stronger was 31 Kf3: ie. 31..Rc5 32 Ke4..b5 33 Rd8!..bxc 34 g6+..Kh6 35 f4..Nf6+ 36 Ke3 and wins. After 33..g6? White was given a quick mating attack; necessary was 33..e5! 34 Nxe5..Nxf4 35 Ke4..Rf8 36 Rd7 though White still would have had excellent winning chances.
