11...h5
This position can arise from the King's Indian Saemisch or the Modern Benoni. Here after 11...a6 12. a4 h5 13. O-O Nh7 14. Qd2 h4 15. Nh1 f5 16. Nf2 Bd7 17. exf5 (17. Kh1! Re8 18. Rg1!) 17...gxf5 18. Nh3 Ng6 19. Nf4 Nxf4 20. Bxf4 Qf6 21. Kh1 White had a small advantage, but won only in the endgame, Tomashevsky, E - Khairullin, I, Aeroflot Open, Moscow 2009.
12. O-O Nh7 13. Qd2 h4 14. Nh1 f5 15. Nf2 Bd7 16. Kh1! a6 17. a4 Re8








   
18. Rg1!
The most aggressive plan.
18...g5
A new move. In the game Lautier, J - Bijaoui, M, FRA-chT Top 16, Clichy 2007 after 18...Rb8 19. g4 (better is 19. g3! hxg3 20. Rxg3, with pressure on the kingside) 19...f4!? 20. Bxf4 g5 21. Be3 Rf8 22. Kg2?! (22. f4! is stronger, 22...gxf4 23. Bxf4) 22...Qf6 23. Qd1 b5 24. axb5 axb5 25. Nh3 b4 26. Nb1 c4 27. Bd4 Qe7 (27...Qg6) 28. Nd2? (28. Ra7!) 28...c3! 29. Nf1? (29. Nb3) Black must play 29...cxb2! 30. Bxb2 Nxf3! 31. Bxg7 Ne1+ 32. Qxe1 Qxe4+ 33. Bf3 Qxf3, mate.
19. exf5! Bxf5 20. Rae1 Rc8 21. Nce4 Nf7 22. Bd3 Re5 23. Bc2 Qd7
After 23...Nf6 24. Nxg5 Rxd5 25. Qc1 Nxg5 26. Bxf5 Rxf5 27. Bxg5 d5 White grabs a pawn 28. Bxh4 Rh5 29. g3.








   
24. g3!
White attacks.
24...Kh8?!
Or 24...hxg3 25. Rxg3, with a clear edge to White.
25. gxh4 gxh4








   
26. Rxg7!!
A typical beautiful sacrifice.
26...Kxg7 27. Rg1+ Kh8
If 27...Kf8 then 28. Bh6+ Ke7 29. Rg7 Kd8 30. Ng4 Re7 31. Nef6 Nxf6 32. Nxf6 Qc7 33. Rg8+ Re8 34. Rxe8, mate.
28. f4 Rxe4 29. Bxe4 Bxe4+
In the case of 29...Nf6 30. Qc3 Ne5 31. fxe5 Nxe4 32. e6+ Nxc3 33. exd7 Bxd7 34. bxc3 White had an extra knight.
30. Nxe4
