Notes by Boris Schipkov

1. d4 e6 2. c4 Nf6 3. Nf3 d5 4. Nc3 Be7 5. Bf4 O-O 6. e3 c5 7. dxc5 Bxc5 8. a3 Nc6 9. b4?!
A dubious move.
9...Nxb4! 10. axb4 Bxb4 11. Qb3 a5








   
12. O-O-O?!
A bad novelty. White's king goes West.
12...Bd7! 13. Rd4?!
Black has a good compensation and attack after 13. Bg5 h6 14. Bh4 Rc8 or 13. Kb1 Bxc3 14. Qxc3 Rc8 15. Qb2 dxc4.
13...Qe7!
Also possible is 13... Rc8 14. Kb1 Bxc3 15. Qxc3 b5 16. Bd6 Re8 17. c5 Ne4 with an edge to Black.
14. Be5 Rfc8 15. Kb1 b5
Interesting is 15...a4! 16. Qb2 Bxc3 17. Qxc3 Ne4 18. Qe1 f6 (18... Ra6) 19. Bg3 e5 20. Rxd5 Be6 21. Rb5 Qa3 winning.
16. Nxb5 a4 17. Qa2
Or 17. Bxf6!? gxf6 18. Qd1.
17...Bxb5 18. Bxf6 gxf6 19. cxb5 Rc3 20. Rd3 Rac8
Black has a clear advantage.









   
21. Be2
White develops his kingside.
21...Ba3 22. Qd2
Or 22. Rxc3 Rxc3 23. Ka1 Bb4.
22...Qb4+ 23. Ka1 Rc1+ 24. Rxc1 Rxc1+ 25. Ka2 Qc4+ 26. Kxa3 Ra1+ 27. Kb2 Qa2+ 28. Kc3 Qb3+
White resigned. 0-1
