    What about 12..Bd8 instead of 12..Bf8 to leave f8 free for your ..Nf8-g6 manuver

    I agree,Be7-d8 looks a bit dangerous.Originally black should try to hold position,at the right moment take on d4,and try to  create the game around e4 pawn.My mistake was in this game,simply miscalculation,but second part of the game,I think black played almost perfect.

    @ NoRematch - The variation you suggested of . . .Be7-Bd8 to allow room for . . .Nd7-Nf8 and then . . .Nf8-Ng6 looks too dangerous for Black since by using the Karpovian Be7-Bf8 allows that Black Bishop to continue controlling the long diagonal of squares including key squares like d6 and even a3.  12. Bh4-Bg3 . . .Be7-Bd8 for example could quickly allow White to take the initiative with something like 13. Ra1-Ra3 . . .Nd7-Nf8 ? 14. d4xe5 ! . . .d6xe5 15. Bg3xBe5 ! . . .Qc7-Qb6 16. Ra3-Rb3 ! and so forth.  I think the . . .Be7-Bf8 is much stronger for the position at the time :)

    How about 12..Bd8 instead of 12...Bf8 to leave f8 free for your ...Nf8-g6 maneuver?
