The Modern Steinitz -- what's wrong with it?
I’ve noticed there’s been a bit of interest on the Forum recently (from Bibs and others) in the Modern Steinitz, so I thought I’d open a couple of new threads on it. This one is intended to be general...

Victor Mikhalevski has announced that after a very long stint he is stepping down from producing the content for the CPub sections on the open games. He's always done a great job for us.

Opening suggestions for 1 e4 e5 update
As Victor has mainly focused on the Ruy Lopez and Italian game, it would be nice to have more games from other openings, e.g. the Scotch!

A ´new´ kingside fianchetto for Black in the Ruy!?
I just noticed an interesting game played today in the German Bundesliga:

However, the line cannot exactly be called new. Checking Megabase the earliest encounter I could find was this game:
[pgn][Event "Tarrasch ...|/pgn]
There is nothing new under the sun...
The line looks interesting to me and maybe Black can use this move order to avoid some of the problem lines in the Cozio-Defence. But I am sure White will find ways to put Black under pressure here as well.
Does anybody know about some published analysis on this line?
