  plang: 4..d4 is the main line though 4..Ne4 is popular as well. 6 h4!? was new and has not been repeated; 6 d4 and 6 Qc2 have been played previously. This innovation ruled out 6..0-0? 7 Bd3..f5 (7..Nxc3? 8 Bxh7+) 8 exf..Nxf6 9 Ng6 with a powerful attack. 11..Bf8? lost too much time; 11..g6 12 h5..Qd5 13 hxg..fxg 14 Be3 (or 14 Bc4) with White better but averting a massacre. 15 f5! was a powerful sacrifice; the alternative 15 Kb1..0-0-0 would have left Black with an equal game. 17..Nxe5 18 Bh3..Qe7 19 Qg3 would not have improved Black's situation. Black resigned after 24 Qd3 as his pieces are too uncoordinated to mount a dense after 24..Nb6 26 Qd6+.
