  luzhin: Anyone who plays on the British club circuit is very familiar with these early f4 closed Sicilians. But even quite strong GMs from the former Eastern Bloc can be surprisingly easily ambushed in this way. Some will remember how Nigel Short pulped Gelfand with a similar off-beat line in their Candidates Match about fifteen years ago.

  keypusher: Gelashvili plays the White side of these types of Sicilians all the time.

Not sure what happened in this game, but lack of familiarity with Jones' set-up is not to blame.

  perfidious: Gelashvili unfamiliar with White's ideas in this? Certainly not, but it can be disconcerting to play against one's favourite systems.
