@OstapBender: thanks for the game  Cool
with my comp help: 15...h6!  (better than Bb7) because Black must hurry to play on dark squares.

After 1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.e5 Nfd7 5.f4 c5 6.Nf3 Nc6 7.Be3 a6 8.Qd2 b5 9.a3 g5 10.fxg5 cxd4 11.Nxd4 Ndxe5

Black's knight on c6 instead of d7 is a significant difference in the position, I think.

I found that 12.Bd3 was tried very recently in Tischbierek-Mueller, Bundesliga 2006-7 Berlin (Feb. 4, 2007)

This game continued 12...Bg7 13.Nxc6 Nxc6 14.Bc5 Ne5 15.0𢠢 Bb7 16.h4 Qc7 17.Bb4 0𢠢 18.Rhf1 Rd7 19.Kb1 Nc4 20.Bxc4 Qxc4 21.Rf4 Qc6 22.Rdf1 d4 23.Ne2 Qxg2 24.Rxf7 Rhd8 25.Ba5 Rxf7 26.Rxf7 Rd7 27.Qf4 Qxe2 28.Rf8+ Bxf8 29.Qxf8+ Rd8 30.Qxd8# 10

but the game followed a very different course (White exchanges on c6 instead of maneuvering Nce2-g3-h5). 營 haven't looked at this game yet, so it is difficult to say whether 12.Bd3 is a serious improvement over 12.Be2 (recommended by Khalifman) or 12.Nce2 (played in Dworakowska-Malakhatko,Capelle 2006). 燤aybe the Tischbierek-Mueller game is worth discussing here.

I recorded 9...g5 10.fxg5!? (10.Ne2 Fedorov-Podolchenko,Minsk 2006 (chesspublishing august 2006)) cxd4 11.Nxd4 and now 10...Ndxe5!? (instead of 10...Nxce5)
Dworakowska-Malakhatko,Capelle 2006 (Chesspublishing)

Is it the end for g5 in this line too ?

Motylev sprung the novelty 12.Bd3 against Volkov in December, 2005 (58th Russian Championship Superfinal at Moscow). 燱hite intends, among other things, the maneuver Nce2-g3-h5. 燗lthough I can find only four games in this line, the idea seems to be pretty successful for White.

12匓b7: Motylev-Volkov, Moscow 2005/1-0 (44)
12匩xd3+: Kosintseva-Zatonskih, Turin OL 2006/1-0(33)
12匓g7 13.Nce2: Jakovenko-Bareev, Sochi 2006/1-0 (73) annotated by Klimov @e3e5.com
12匓g7 13.0-0: Glek-Sambuev, Moscow 2006/- (19). 燭he only game White did not win, but compare to Jakovenko-Bareev where White postponed castling and commenced with Nce2-g3-h5 right away.

Is this the end of Moro's 9...g5 line?


Here's a new link to Jakovenko-Bareev, Sochi 2006. 燬omehow the link I gave above (which still worked this morning!) got broken. 燗pparently the e3e5.com website is re-organizing.

Oh, btw,

As Anand shows in his notes and in the game continuation, there really isn't any material lost for Black after 9...g5, so it isn't even really a sac!

The idea behind the ...g5 sac isn't new but as Anand's analysis shows it seems quite good here.

BasqueKnight,

My minimal computer skills won't let me save the page and copy it to here.  The analysis is absolutely breathtaking.  Anand doesn't pull any punches and gives some very concrete analysis.  The down side is that if you don't read French you will lose quite a bit of his meaning.  Here's a hint for the non-francophones:  R=Roi/King (not Rook); D=Dame/Queen; T=Tour/Rook; C=Chevalier/Knight; F=Fou/Bishop P=pion/pawn. 

Joel Lautier introduces the section and don't forget to look at page 35 (the next page) for some great tactics.  This is the sort of magazine I wish the USCF would publish.  Oh well.

There's an article in Opening Preparation by Dvoretsky with the heading "g7-g5 thrust in French Defence" This thread got my interest into reading that and then Anand-Morozovich game. Hopefully get back to you by Monday

Now, game is commented by Anand in July 2005 Ed Echecs&Mat (French federation magazine), and you can review your analysis, reading paper at URL

http://www.echecs.asso.fr/(pgbz2iq2g4c4bwnsmkuwudqu)/Ag/EM81/p34_plus_belles_par...

Its a **free** analysis given by Anand

Doesnt' exist one review of the game in last "Europe Echecs", commented by GM David Marciano ?
(Of course: if "Moro" is your nickname for Morozevich)

C11: Moro's 9 ... g5!? in the 9 a3 French Steinitz

What do strong French players here think about the Moro novelty 9 ... g5!? that he played against Anand at Amber this year? The lines goes 7 Be3 a6 8 Qd2 b5 9 a3 and then Moro's 9 ... g5!?. 營t looks like a pawn sac to deflect the White f-pawn (10 fxg5) to rule out a future f4-f5 by White, his thematic French kingside pawn breakthrough. No more f4-f5 but Black has paid the price of a pawn and given White a half-open f-file to use.

Any comments from strong players much appreciated.
