Notes by Boris Schipkov

1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 e6 3. Nc3 Bb4 4. e3 O-O 5. Bd3 d5 6. cxd5 exd5 7. Nge2 c6?!
This is a somewhat passive move. Better is 7...Re8.
8. O-O Re8
After 8... Bd6 9. f3 c5 10. Qe1 Nc6 11. Qh4 h6 12. Bd2 b6 13. Rad1 Nb4 14. Bb1 Ba6 15. Bc1 Re8 16. Rfe1 White had a minimal advantage in Aleksandrov, A - Lerner, K, Nikolaev 1995.
9. f3 c5 10. a3 Bxc3
The alternative is 10...cxd4.
11. bxc3 Nc6








   
12. Ra2
A typical manoeuvre. White has a better prospects in the set-up. He plans the classical e3-e4 advance in the centre.
12...Qc7 13. Ng3 Be6 14. Bb1 Rac8 15. Raf2 Qd7 16. Qd3 h6 17. Rd1!

The decisive sacrifice!

26. e5 Nh7 27. Nd6 Rf8 28. d5 b5
