Notes by Boris Schipkov

1. e4 c6 2. d4 d5 3. Nc3 dxe4 4. Nxe4 Bf5 5. Ng3 Bg6 6. Nf3 Nf6 7. h4 h6 8. h5 Bh7 9. Bd3 Bxd3 10. Qxd3 e6 11. Bf4 Qa5+ 12. Bd2 Bb4 13. c3 Be7








   
14. b4?
A dubious novelty. White weakens his queenside. The alternative is 14. c4 Bb4 15. O-O Bxd2 16. Qxd2 Qc7 17. Qb4 Nbd7 18. Qa3 c5 19. dxc5 O-O, Dervishi, E - Zelcic, R, Cutro op 2000 (1-0, 63).
Or 15. a3 Bxd2+ 16. Nxd2 Nbd7 17. b4 Qc7 18. O-O a5 19. c5 axb4 20. axb4 O-O, Mithrakanth, P - Prakash, G, IND-chT, Chennai 2000 (1/2, 33).
14...Qc7 15. Ne5 Nbd7 16. f4 a5! 17. bxa5
Possible is 17. b5 with a small advantage to Black.
17...O-O 18. O-O
Interesting is 18. Nc4.
18...Rxa5 19. Qe2 Rfa8 20. Be1 c5!
The timely counterstrike in the centre.
21. f5 cxd4 22. cxd4
If 22. Nxf7 then 22...d3! 23. Qxe6 Nf8 24. Nxh6+ Kh7 winning.









   
22...Nxe5!
A nice and strong exchange sacrifice.
23. Bxa5 Rxa5 24. dxe5
Also hopeless is 24. fxe6 fxe6 25. Rac1 Qb6.
24...Rxe5 25. Qd2 Bc5+ 26. Kh1








   
26...Re4!
A beautiful blow.
