 GM E. Bacrot (2653)  -  K. Sasikiran (2670) / The FIDE Olympiad; BLED, SLO;  2002.  

Below is the base move - which you can study until I have it  (deeply) annotated. 

  GM E. Bacrot (2653)  -  K. Sasikiran (2670)

 The Bayonet Variation, which is "The zenith of fashion," to quote MCO. (The first 5 games will ALL will cover this line!) 

9...Nh5; ('!?')  This is nice ... but I prefer 9...a5; here.

  22.exf5 Bxf5;  23.Ng3 Bg6;  24.Ne4 Nxg4;  25.hxg4,  Draw agreed. 
 An interesting game. (By two VERY strong players.) 

 Hopefully, my notes will show some hidden ideas.  (Stay tuned.)
