9. a3!?
An interesting plan. White intends to gain space on the queenside.
9...Bd7
After 9...e5 10. d5 Ne7 11. b4 Ne8 12. Nc1 f5 13. Nb3 Nf6 14. Bd3 fxe4 15. Nxe4 Nxe4 16. fxe4 Bd7 17. Bf2 c6 18. O-O cxd5 19. cxd5 White had a small edge in Schipkov, B - Bjerring, K, Kecskemet 1992.
10. b4








   
10...Re8!?
A very good waiting move. In the case of 10...e5 White obtains a clear advantage 10. b4 e5 11. d5 Ne7 12. Nc1 Nh5 13. Bd3 f5 14. Nb3 b6 15. Bc2 Kh8 16. O-O-O! f4 17. Bf2 Ng8 18. Kb2 Qf6 19. Ka2 Rf7 20. Rc1 Bf8 21. Bd3 Be7 22. c5, Schipkov, B - Chigvintsev, Al, Novosibirsk Burevestnik 1987.
11. b5
Also possible are 11. Rd1, 11. Kf2, 11. g3, 11. d5 and 11. Rc1.
For example, 11. Rd1 Qc8 12. Nc1 e5 13. d5 Nd4! 14. N1e2 c5 15. dxc6 bxc6 16. Nxd4 exd4 17. Bxd4 c5! 18. Bxf6 (18. Be3 cxb4 19. axb4 Rxb4 20.Qxd6 Rb3) 18... Bxf6 19. Nd5 Be5 20. Qg5 (20. Bd3) 20...Ba4 21. Rb1 cxb4 22. axb4 a5 23. Bd3?! (23. b5 Bc2 24. Rc1 Bb3) 23...axb4 24. Nf6+ (24. O-O) 24...Bxf6 25. Qxf6 Qc5 and Black attacks, Zsinka, L - Loginov, V, Budapest 1993.
11...axb5 12. cxb5 Na5 13. Nc1 e5 14. d5 c5 15. Bd3








   
15....Nh5!
Black gets counterplay.
16. O-O Nf4 17. Rb1 b6 18. N1e2 Nxd3 19. Qxd3 f5 20. Nd1 Qc8 21. a4 f4








   
22. Bd2!
Threatening Bxa5 with advantage to White due to pair of the strong knights. This move is much better than 22. Bf2? and White cannot develop the initiative on the queen’s wing.
22...Nb7
After 22...c4 23. Qa3 Nb3 24. Bb4 (24. Qb4) 24...Ra8 25. Rxb3!? (25. Rf2) 25...cxb3 26. Qxb3 Bf8 27. Nb2 Qc7 28. Rc1 Qa7 White can continue excellently 29. Rc6!! Bxc6 30. dxc6+ Kg7 (30...Qf7 31. Qxf7+ Kxf7 32. Nc3) 31. Nc3 and White's cavalry is superior to the black rooks.
23. Nb2 g5 24. Nc4








   
24...Qd8
Now White keeps the pressure on the queenside, but Black has some counterplay on the kingside.
25. Ra1 h5 26. Rfb1
Draw. 1/2-1/2
