Thanks, Wintermondnacht. I'd been failing to keep up!
I had in fact seen Anand-Maghsoodloo* on ChessPublishing as well as Kuybokarov-Maghsoodloo, but had managed to completely forget about the former -- but I do now recall looking at 10 Be2 there and thinking Black is OK there too. Exciting stuff, and with the usual slew of possible transpositions to make the head spin!
Why, I've often wondered, is the Kalashnikov not more popular with the elite? Because they're not convinced it's reliable, or because some lines might be too drawish, like some Sveshnikov lines? (I guess it can't be because of the Rossolimo, as that affects 5 ...e5 too, albeit not the rarer 2 ...e6 move-order.)
* Which I mention on the basis that 6 c4 g6 usually(?) transposes to 8 ...g6 lines, after 7 N1c3
a6 8 Na3 Be6. I imagine 7 Be3
will also mainly transpose, and possibly 7 Be2
too, but 7 Bd3
is a different line -- I guess it could be less of a threat as it gives White less control of d4.
