Peter Svidler on his way to play 14...f4.

14. f4 a5 15. f5 Bxb3 16. cxb3 a4 17. bxa4 Rxa4 18. f6?! Fritz suggest that white should secure his defend first with 18. b3 before playing f5-f6 for eg. 18.b3 Ra5 19.Kb1 now black can defense his queenside with Rc1 - Rc2 if nessecary, if not he can start attcking with f6! 18... gxf6 19. Kb1 probably here Svidler saw that the natural 19. gxf6? run into a strong exchange sacrifiece 19...Nef6 20. Bh6 Kh8! 21.Bxf8 Bxf8 when black has a simul attack on a2 and e4 ! 19...Qa8 20. Nc1 Nc5 21. Bxc5 dxc5 22. gxf6 Nxf6 23. Bc4 Kh8 24. Rhg1 Ra7 25. Qg5 Rg8 26. Qxe5 Qxe4+ 27. Qxe4 Nxe4 28. Bxf7 Rg7 29. Bd5 Nf6 30. Bc4 Rxg1 31. Rxg1 Bd6 32. h3 Re7 33. Rd1 Bc7 34.
