  Mateo: An important game in a well-known variation. It seems that 13.Rg1 is a novelty. There should be an improvement for Black somewhere (maybe 16...f6? seems dubious). The finish would be a nice puzzle, 37.Nd4! and 38.Rxe3!.

  kingscrusher: Very sharp game and razor sharp opening theory. I am not sure if 13.Rg1 is a novelty - it seems fairly standard to me - I have definitely seen this Rg1, g4 and Rg3 plan before in for example Short playing White against this variation.

I have done a video annotation of the game here:-
