Got from Chesbase website yesterday - FIDE World Cup Tromso 2013.

Game: Kamsky, Gata –Shimanov, Aleksandr, Aug 2013 repeats Anand-Nakamura opening moves and diverts from this thread after 15...Qh4+...and come back to it after 19.Qd4 and playing my suggestion 19..Ba3 and following line D) until 25.Rd1

I guess analysis in this special kind of endgames is not straightforward...sorry for Shimanov for this time : too much sad to have a h2 pawn for a happy queen's mother day (last monday inThailand).  Cool

C01: Boleslavsky -Nakamura way - 18...Ba3!?

off-topic: I just removed Windows Vista and installed Fedora (Linux) on my laptop...my chess programs and data are unavailable to me for some time...then, don't be angry for no quick reply at your next posts (need time to install more stuff). Cool

After reading last chesspub update, I recorded some lines and ideas, about Boleslavsky variation and Nakamura Qb6. The topic is about the alternative move 18...Ba3!?

Reference game is Nakamura's game vs Anand in Tata Steel tournament January 2013. There are short youtube videos with Nakamura and Anand, explaining their point of view after the game (draw). I recall first moves to reach critical position (no bothering about move order in game):

1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.e5 Nfd7 5.f4 c5 6.Nf3 Nc6 (6...Qb6!? (Korchnoi) 7.Be3 Qxb2? 8.Nb5 Na6 9.a3 Be7 10.Rb1 Qb2 11.Qc1 +/-) 7.Be3 cxd4 (7...Qb6 8.Na4! Boleslavsky main plan) 8.Nxd4 (8.Bxd4 Nxd4 9.Nxd4 Qb6) Qb6!?  (Nakamura and others)
