1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bb5 a6 4. Ba4 Nf6 5. O-O b5 6. Bb3 Bc5 7. c3 d6 8. Re1
Bb6 9. a4 Rb8 10. axb5 axb5 11. h3 {(My old analysis of 2003 recommend Na3. I
never encountered the variation again in a standard otb game.)} O-O 12. d4 h6 {
(I remember that this little move made a big impression. At that time it
was not yet played by a + 2500 player. Later the move was tried by Almasi,
Shirov, Gustafson,...)} 13. Be3 {(Same plan as with Bb7 but here it does not
have the same strength.)} Bd7 {(The earliest game in the database is from 2010
played by Almasi with this very interesting move.)} 14. Nbd2 Re8 15. Bc2 {
(Kamsky won with Qb1 against Almasi but exd4 is already an improvement instead
of b4 as shown by the engines.)} exd4 16. cxd4 Nb4 17. Bb1 c5 18. d5 c4 19. Nd4
Ra8 20. Rxa8 {(A draw proposal which was accepted mainly because of the rating
difference as clearly white must be very careful.)} 1/2-1/2
