Hummm, I checked the game and there is also another major difference - White knight in that gme is on e2 and black played b6 instead of c5. Now after 15...h5 White can play 16.f4 without fearing of the main Black's weapon in Kasparov's game - Ne7 followed by h4- because here the c5 pawn hangs.
Maybe better is 15...b6 first defending the pawn and then trying to build this setup. After 16.f4 Ne7 17.g4 Black should play 17...g6 followed by Rg8 and h5.
15...Nf4 is not quite good for Black. I think since after 16.Nd3 Nd3 17.Rd3 c4 (what else) 18.Rd4 despite the fact that Black manages to exchange his doubled pawn he is far away from equality.

I will check that game again and try to realise the difference. Strange that Rybka and Fritz assess this position clearly in White's favour but I have doubts about this. As I mentioned the comments in Chess Informant to this position are bad and they state that White has a clear plus...

This is Kasparov-Kramnik game 1 with the bishop on e6 not d7, no? In which case Black should play 15...h5, and since Kramnik played ...Be6 in a few moves White needs to show why he isn't a tempo down on that game.

Berlin Wall Question

Hello, recently I looked at the following line in the Berlin: 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 Nf6 4.O-O Nxe4 5.d4 Nd6 6.Bxc6 dxc6 7.dxe5 Nf5 8.Qxd8+ Kxd8 9.Nc3 and now 9...Ne7 10.h3 Ng6 11.Ne4 h6 12.b3 c5 13.Bb2 Be6 14.Rad1+ Kc8 15.Ne1. This line is not mentioned in the book about Berlin. There is a game with this line in Chess Informant, but the comments inside are quite buggy. Would be interested to hear your opinion what you think about the position.
