Notes by Boris Schipkov

1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 g6 3. Nc3 Bg7 4. Nf3 O-O 5. Bg5








   
5...d6
Another try is 5...c5 6. d5 d6 7. e4 e6 8. Nd2 h6 9. Bh4 Na6 10. Be2 e5 11. O-O Qd7 12. a3 Ne8 13. Kh1 f5 14. exf5 gxf5 15. f4 exf4 16. Rxf4 Be5 17. Rf1 Ng7 18. Nf3 Bf6 19. Qd2 Kh7 20. Bd3 Bxh4 21. Nxh4 Qd8 22. Rf4 Bd7 23. Raf1 Qg5 24. Nf3 Qg6 25. g4 Kh8 26. gxf5 Bxf5 27. Nh4 Qg5 28. Nxf5 Nxf5 29. Qf2 1-0, Black resigned in Goldin, A - Gufeld, E, Continental Open, Las Vegas 2001.
6. e3 c5 7. d5 Na6 8. Nd2 Nc7 9. a4 a6 10. Be2 h6 11. Bh4 Rb8 12. a5 b5 13. axb6 Rxb6 14. Ra2 g5 15. Bg3 Bf5 16. O-O Bg6 17. h4 Qd7 18. hxg5 hxg5 19. e4








   
19...e5?!
A risky move. Black prevents White from pushing the e4-pawn. But now he immures his dark-squred bishop. After 19...Rfb8 20. e5 Nfe8 21. Na4 Rb4 22. Re1 White has only a small advantage.
20. b3 Rbb8
More precise is 20... Rfb8.
21. Bh2 Kh7 22. g4!
Excellent! Alexander blockades Black's kingside completely.
22...Rh8?!
Maybe Black thought that the rival would attack on the kingside.
23. f3! Kg8 24. Na4!
Improving the knight's emplacement.
24...Nh7 25. Nb2 Nf8 26. Nd3 Bh7








   
27. b4!
A nice breakthrough on the queenside. Black pieces are crowding on the kingside and cannot help.
27...cxb4 28. Qa4!
The decisive nuance.
28...Qxa4
If 28... b3 then 29. Qxd7 Nxd7 30. Rb2 Bg6 31. Rfb1 Kh7 32. Nxb3 with a clear edge.
29. Rxa4 Ng6 30. Rb1 Nf4 31. Bf1 Bf6 32. Raxb4 Rxb4 33. Nxb4








   
33...Kg7
Since black pawns are weak White has a huge advantage.
34. Nc6 a5 35. Ra1 Na6 36. Rxa5 Nc5 37. Bg3 Bd8 38. Nxd8 Rxd8 39. Bf2 Rb8 40. Bxc5 dxc5 41. Rb5!
Winning.
41...Ra8 42. Nb3 Kf6 43. Nxc5 Ra1 44. Kf2 Ra2+ 45. Ke3 Ra1 46. Bd3 Ra2 47. Nd7+ Kg7 48. Nxe5 Ra3 49. Rb7 Bg6 50. Kd4 Kh6 51. Bc2 f6 52. Nd3 Ne2+ 53. Ke3
Black resigned. 1-0
