The other possibilities include two moves that offer White little and several interesting but under-explored ideas:

a) 10 f4 has not justified White's hopes:

a3) 10...i.xe4! and then: a31) 11 i.e3 d5!? 12 f5 (12 c3 bxc3 13 £ixc3 J.c5 + Couso-Astrom, Stockholm 1994) 12...e5 13 &f3 £tod7

14 <2ig5 ®c7! (14..Ae.1V. 15 £ixe4 dxe4 16 Sf2 Wc7 17 g4! h6 18 h4, Velimirovic-Ilincic, Jagodina 1993)

15 £>xe4 (15 c3 h6! IlinCic) 15...dxe4 -11 f5 e5 12 ¿hf3 ¿hbd7! ? 131hg5 d5 14 ¿hxe4 dxe4 15 $Le3 Wc7! T-

a32) 11 f5 e5 and now: a321) 12 Sel JLe7!?. a322) 12 £)bd7!? 13 <£g5 d5 14 £sxe4 dxe4 15 i.e3 Wc7! 16 ®e2 (16 g4?! h6 + Todorovic-Marjanovic, Kavala 1998) 16...h6!? 17 Sacl ±e7 18 c3 Wb7 19 c4 0-0 T Sofronie-Mar-janovic, Bucharest 1998.

a323) 12 Ag5! £ibd7 (12...i.e7!? 13 ±xf6 JLxf6! {13...gxf6?? 14 ¿xf7+ +- Ilic) 14 Wei d5 15 <£e2 £>c6 16 Sdl 0-0 17 c4 « Browne-Saidy, Atlanta 1967) 13 Sel (13 £>e6? fxe6 14 fxe6 £ib6!) 13...¿b7! (13...^.e7? 14 ±xf6 &xf6 15 Sxe4!; 13...Wc7? 14 Sxe4! <^xe4 15 &b5! +-) 14 <^e6 fxe6

15 fxe6 and White's chances are questionable, Kaps-Novak, Ljubljana 1999.

b) 10 i.e3i.xe4 11 Sel is also unconvincing:

b2) ll..Jk.e7!? and now 12 i.xe6 fxe6 13 £ixe6 Wd7! or 12 ®b6 Sa7!? 13 £xe6?! Sb7!.

b3) ll...d5 12 f3 JLg6 13 f4 (13 jk.f4!?) 13...jk.d6 with good chances for Black, Olesen-Âstrôm, Stockholm 1994.

c) 10c3bxc3(10...J.e711^.xe6!?) 11 £>xc3 £>bd7 12 £.a4 i.e7!? =.

d) 10f3£ibd7 11 Wei!? has hardly been investigated.

e) 10 Wei!? (also rare) 10...a5 11e5 °° Gurieli-Smagin, Bad Wiessee 1999.

f) 10 ii.g5!? deserves serious attention: 10...£ibd7 (10...i.e7 11 Axe6) 11 Sel i.e7 12 a3 (12 c3!? bxc3 13 JLxe6, Borik-Bouaziz, Dortmund 1979) 12...bxa3 13 Sxa3 0-0 14 i.xe6! fxe6 15 £}xe6 We8 16 Sg3 with an advantage for White, Short-Van Wely, Gar-misch rpd 1994.
