The fourth game of the World Championship match started at 15.00 Moscow time. The opponents continued their theoretical debate in the Chebanenko Variation of the Slav Defence, which started in the second game.

The Slav Defence
1.d4 d5 2.c4 c6 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.e3 e6 5.Nf3 a6 6.b3 Bb4 7.Bd2 Nbd7 8.Bd3 O-O 9.O-O Bd6

Gelfand played the rarer move 10.Rc1 in the second game.
10...e5 11.cxd5 cxd5 12.e4 exd4 13.Nxd5 Nxd5 14.exd5 Nf6

In the very recent game Kaidanov - Hess at the U.S. Championship (briefly annotated on our site) there was 15.Rae1 Bg4!.
15.h3 Bd7
16.Rad1 Re8
It's possible that Black's last move is a novelty. In the game, played via e-mail, Galanov - Boldysh (2008) there was 16...Rс8.
The game continues.
