Another interesting line is 15...Re8!?
16. cxd5 fxe4
Weaker is 16...f4?! Kramnik, V - Radjabov, T, Dortmund 2003.
17. Bxe4








   
17...Rb8!
A good novelty. Worse is 17...Qd6?! with an edge to White.
18. Rad1
If 18. Rac1 then 18...f5 19. Rxc8 Rbxc8 20. Bxf5 Qg5 21. Be6+ Kh8.
18...Qd7!?
Worthy of further research is 18... Rb6!?
19. d6
Or 19. Bb1 f5 20. Nc2 Rb6! with equality.
19...Rb6 20. Qd3
After 20. Qc3!? Rxd6 21. Bf5 Black sacrifices his queen 21...Rxd1! 22. Bxd7 Rxd7 23. Nc2 Rfd8 24. Qa5 Rd6 with compensation.
20...Rd8! 21. Bxh7+ Kh8 22. Qe3

22...Rxd6 23. Rxd6 Qxd6 24. Bb1 f5

25. Nc2 e4 26. b4 Be5!
Now Black gets a small advantage.

31...e3 32. fxe3 fxg3 33. hxg3 Qg6 34. Qg2 Bxg3 35. Ne1 Qg5 36. Qb2+ Kg8
More precise is 36...Kf7.








   
37. Nf3?!
Better is 37. Qb3+! Kf8 38. Nf3 Qg4 39. Qd5 with equal chances.
37...Qxe3+ 38. Kg2 Bf4 39. Qb3+ Qxb3 40. axb3 Bd6 41. Kf2 Bxb4
