Notes by Boris Schipkov

1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 e6 3. Nc3 Bb4 4. e3 O-O 5. Bd3 d5 6. Nf3 c5 7. O-O dxc4 8. Bxc4 Nbd7 9. a3
The alternative is 9. Qe2.
9...Ba5 10. Qe2








   
10...cxd4
In the game Sarthou, G. - Adams, M., Moscow 2001 Black played 10...a6 11. a4 b6 12. Rd1 Bb7 13. d5 exd5 14. Nxd5 Nxd5 15. Bxd5 Bxd5 16. Rxd5 Qc7 with equality.
11. exd4 Bxc3 12. bxc3 Qc7 13. Bd3 b6
If 13...Qxc3 then 14. Bd2 or 14. Bg5 and White has a development advantage.
14. c4 Bb7 15. Re1 Rac8 16. Bg5 h6 17. Bd2 Rfd8 18. Rac1 Qd6 19. Bb4 Qf4 20. Qe3 Nh5 21. Nd2?!
Correct is 21. Be2 with more or less equal game.
21...Ndf6 22. Bc3








   
22...Bxg2!!
Thunderbolt! A great sacrifice leads to a big advantage in all variations.
23. Kxg2 Ng4 24. Qh3?!
After 24. Qf3 Qxh2+ 25. Kf1 Nxf2! 26. Re3 (26. Qxf2 Ng3+ 27. Qxg3 Qxg3) 26... Nxd3 27. Rxd3 e5! Black has a powerful attack. More precise is 24. Qxf4 Nxf4+ 25. Kf3 Nxd3 26. Kxg4 Nxf2+ 27. Kf3 Nd3 with a clear edge to Black in the ending.
24...Qxf2+ 25. Kh1








   
25...Qxe1+!
Winning.
26. Rxe1 Nf2+ 27. Kg2 Nxh3 28. Kxh3 Nf4+ 29. Kg3 Nxd3 30. Re3 Nc1 31. Bb2 Na2 32. Rb3 b5 33. c5 Rb8 34. Ne4 b4 35. a4 Nc3
