  Gilmoy: <5.h4 6.h5> is a bullet idea gone wrong. With time to think, Volokitin calculates <12..cxd5!>, a sham piece offer that's really a Q trap: <16..Rc8> threatens 17..a5 18.Qa3 (which happens anyways). She never finds a safe square.

White paid 3 pawns and pulled Black's minors into their best positions, just to achieve ... h6 and Bb1. When he decided he couldn't play 10.e5 (Nxd4 and it's only N+B for R+P + can't castle + wasted tempo to recapture the N), he was surely already losing.
