  An Englishman: Good Morning: 12...d6 does not appear in the database, so that might be the innovation. Based upon practical results, 10...Bg7 has not fared well (...Qb4 and ...d6 score better). 17...Nxd6 might be the final error, although 17...cxd6 does not look appealing.

Sep-27-16  patzer2: Instead of 10...Bg7 Qf2 (+0.62 @ 31 depth, Stockfish 7), the computers prefer 10...d6 = (-0.15 @ 38 depth, Komodo 10) as in T Nedev vs Kramnik, 2014.
Sep-28-16  saintdufus: In the final position White threatens 24.Qe8+ Qe8 25.Re8+ Kf7 26.Rb7, winning a piece.
