Notes by Boris Schipkov

1. d4 d6 2. Nf3 Bg4 3. e4 Nf6 4. Nc3 Nc6 5. d5 Nb8
A slightly passive move. Bad is 5...Bxf3?! 6. Qxf3 Ne5 7. Qe2 Ned7 8. f4 e5 9. dxe6 fxe6 10. g3 e5 11. Bh3 c6 12. Be3 Be7 13. Qc4 Nb6 14. Qb3 Qc7 15. fxe5 dxe5 16. O-O-O Nbd7 17. Rhf1 Rf8 18. Qe6 Rd8 19. g4 g5 20. Bxg5 Nc5 21. Rxd8+ Kxd8 22. Qf5 Ke8 23. Bh6 1-0, Black resigned in Farago, I - Horvath, T, HUN-chT 1993 or 7...c6 8. f4 Ng6 9. g3 e5 10. dxe6 fxe6 11. Bh3 e5 12. Bd2 Qc7 13. Qc4 Nd7 14. Nb5 Qc8 15. Qe6+ Kd8 16. Nxd6 Bxd6 17. Qxd6 Qc7 18. Qd3 exf4 19. gxf4 1-0, Black resigned in Horvath, T - Teske, H, Bundesliga 1995.
The alternative is 5...Ne5. Here if 6. Bb5+ then 6...Ned7 7. h3 Bxf3 8. Qxf3 g6 9. O-O Bg7 10. Re1 O-O 11. a4 c6 1/2-1/2, draw in Anand, V - Miles, A, Cannes 1989. Possible is 6. Nxe5!? Bxd1 7. Bb5+ c6 8. dxc6 dxe5 9. c7+ Qd7 10. Bxd7+ Kxd7 11. Kxd1 Kxc7 12. f4 exf4 13. Bxf4+ Kc6 14. Rf1 Kd7 15. b4 e5 16. b5 Kd6 17. Be3 Ke6 18. Nd5 Bd6 19. Kd2 1/2-1/2, draw in Nevostrujev, V - Kosic, D, Novi Sad 1992. More precise is 12. Ke2 e6 13. Be3 a6 14. Rad1 with a small edge in the endgame.
6. h3 Bxf3 7. Qxf3








   
7...c6
The alternative is 7...g6 8. Bd3?! Bg7 9. O-O c6 10. Bd2 Nbd7 11. a4 O-O 12. a5 Ne5 13. Qe3 Nxd3 14. Qxd3 Nd7 15. f4 Nc5 16. Qf3 cxd5 17. exd5 Rc8 18. f5 Nd7 19. Qe2 1/2-1/2, draw in Dvoretzky, M - Zielinska, M, Hoogovens-C op, Wijk aan Zee 1999.
