  saffuna: Are 10. a4 and 11. b5 theory at all?

Looks to me as if Firouzja totally abandons the center to black and puts all his bets on the a- and b-pawns advancing.

26...Ra6 looks strange.

Fascinating game.

  Pulo y Gata: An attacking masterpiece
Nov-23-20  fisayo123: Firouzja had already played this against Caruana in the Norway chess tiebreaks. Sort of like a reverse Noteboom .

  perfidious: <saffuna>, here is the game mentioned by <fisayo123>: A Firouzja vs Caruana, 2020.

I played the Noteboom in correspondence a few times in the late 1990s; interesting stuff, with theory stretching beyond the twentieth move in the main lines. Lost a game to a Swiss player ca 2550 in one of those variations, which I would submit if it were anywhere near to hand--believe he improved on published theory.
