Notes by Boris Schipkov

1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 g6 3. Nc3 Bg7 4. e4 d6 5. f3 O-O 6. Nge2 a6 7. Be3 Nbd7 8. Qd2 c5 9. dxc5 dxc5 10. Rd1 Qa5
Interesting is 10... Qc7!? 11. Nf4 e6 12. Nd3. White has a small edge. 12... Ne8 13. Nf2 f5 14. exf5 gxf5 15. f4 Ndf6 16. Be2 b6 17. Bf3 Ra7 18. O-O Bb7 19. Qe2 Bxf3 20. Qxf3 Nd6 21. Bc1 Nf7 22. Rfe1 Re8 23. Re2 Nd8 1/2-1/2, draw, Khenkin, I - Banikas, H, Bolzano op 2000.
Or 12...b6 13. Be2 Bb7 14. Bf4 e5 15. Bg5 Nb8 16. Nd5 Bxd5 17. cxd5 Ne8 18. b4? Estremera Panos, S - Lanka, Z, Mondariz op 1997 (0-1, 48). Better is 18. O-O Nd6 19. Nf2.
11. Nc1 Qc7 12. Nd3 b6 13. Bf4








   
13...e5
A dubious novelty. In the game Luce, S - Morovic Fernandez, I, Copenhagen 1982 (draw, 73) Black played 13...Qb7 14. Be2 Rd8 15. Nc1 (15. O-O) 15... Re8 16. e5? Nh5 17. e6 fxe6 18. Be3 Ne5! 19. O-O Nc6 20. f4 Nd4 21. Bxh5 gxh5 22. Bxd4? (22. N1e2!?) 22... Bxd4+ 23. Kh1 Qc6 24. Nd3 Bb7 25. Qe2 Rf8 26. Rde1 (26. Ne5) 26... Rad8 27. Ne4 Bg7 28. Rf3 and after 28... Qxe4? the second player had only a minimal advantage. Better is 28... e5! 29. Nc3 (29. f5 Qxe4 30. Qxe4 Bxe4 31. Rxe4 e6) 29...Qh6 30. Rf2 Rd4! 31. Nxe5 Rdxf4 32. Nd1 Qe6 33. Nd3 Qxe2 34. Rexe2 Rd4! 35. Rxf8+ Kxf8 36. N1f2 Rxc4 and Black wins.
Correct is 16. O-O with a small advantage to White.
14. Bg5 Re8 15. Be2 Nf8 16. Nd5! Nxd5 17. cxd5 Nd7 18. Rc1 Qd6 19. b4 cxb4 20. Qxb4 Qb8 21. O-O Bf8 22. Qb2 Bb7 23. a4 a5 24. Nf2 Bc5 25. Bb5 Qd6 26. Bxd7 Qxd7








   
27. Rxc5! bxc5 28. Ng4 Ra6 29. Nh6+! Kf8 30. f4! Bxd5 31. exd5 f5 32. Rd1?
Better was 32. Qa2! Qd6 33. fxe5 Qxe5 34. d6 Qd4+ 35. Kh1 c4 36. d7 Qxd7 37. Qb2 Qg7 38. Qa3+ Re7 39. Re1 winning.
32...Qxa4 33. Qc1 Rd6 34. h4 Qb3 35. Qa1 Rxd5 36. Rb1 Qe3+ 37. Kh1 Qd4?
The last mistake. Stronger is 37... Rd7! 38. fxe5 Qxe5 39. Qxa5 Kg7.
38. Qxa5 exf4
If 38... Rd7 then 39. Bf6 Qf2 40. fxe5 Qc2 41. Qb6 Rd1+ 42. Rxd1 Qxd1+ 43. Kh2.
39. Rb7 Rd7 40. Rxd7 Qxd7 41. Qxc5+ Re7 42. Ng8 Kxg8 43. Qxe7
Black resigned. 1-0
