The 100 year wait!

Das,A-Sasikiran,K 32nd TCh-IND 2012, featured a relatively rare idea in the 8.Nd2 line:

Position after 8 Nd2

Here Black played Tarrash's 8...Nf4, and his subsequent improvement, 10...Qc5, waited almost 100 years to appear on the board and allowed Black to fully equalize. The 8...Nf4 line looks like a good weapon against 8.Nd2, and the ball is in White's court.
