Markov, Y. - Fominyh, A. [B10]
Miskolc open 1989

Notes by Yuri Markov and Boris Schipkov

1. e4 c6 2. d3 d5 3. Nd2 e5 4. Ngf3 Bd6 5. g3
If 5. Qe2, then 5...Nf6 6. g3 O-O 7. Bg2 Re8 8. O-O Nbd7 9. b3 a5 with an equal game in Akopian-Khenkin, USSR 1988. 6.d4 leads to sharp play 6...exd4 7.exd5+ Be7 8.Nb3 c5 9.Bg5 0-0 10.0-0-0 Nbd7 11.Re1 and the contenders agreed to a draw in a better position for Black, Ye Jiangchuang-Magem Badals, Beijing 1998.
5...Ne7
More popular is 5...Nf6.
6. Bg2 O-O 7. O-O Nd7
Weaker is 7... f5?! 8. exd5 cxd5 9. c4 Nbc6 10. cxd5 Nxd5 11.Qb3 Bc7 12. Nxe5 with advantage to White in Savon-Pomar, Wijk aan Zee 1972.
In Bruzon-Volzhin, mem Capablanca 2000 the line 7...Bg4!? 8.h3 Bxf3 9.Nxf3 Nd7 10.h4 was tested and after long manoeuvres the game ended in a draw. For the use of force of two bishops it was necessary to open position similarly to the game Markov-Fominyh - 10.exd5! cxd5 11.c4 dxc4 12.dxc4 Qc7 13.Ng5 Rad8 14.Ne4 Rad8 15.Nxd6 Rxd6 16.Qe2 Nxc4 17.b3 Nb6 18.Qxe5 with the better prospects for White. Interesting is 8...Bh5.










   
8. exd5!
A novelty. In Timman-Pomar, Wijk aan Zee 1972 White played 8. Re1 f5 9. exf5 Nxf5 10. b3 Qf6 11. Bb2 Nh6 12. c4 Nf7 13. cxd5 cxd5 14. Qe2 Nb6 with a good position for Black. Konstantinopolsky recommended 8. c4!?
8...cxd5 9. c4 Nc5 10. cxd5 Nxd3
If 10... Nxd5, then also 11. Nc4.
11. Nc4 Bf5?!
Correct is 11... Nxc1 12. Rxc1 Bg4 13. Qb3 Bxf3 14. Bxf3 b6 15. Rfe1 with a small advantage to White.
12. Be3! Be4?
Better is 12... h6 13. Nfd2 b5 14. Nxd6 Qxd6 15. Qb3 or 12... b5 13. Nxd6 Qxd6 14. Qe2 and White has a minimal edge.
13. Ng5!
Now White's chances are obviously better.
13...Bxg2 14. Kxg2 Nb4 15. Ne4 Nf5 16. a3 Na6 17. Qf3 Nxe3+ 18. fxe3 Bb8?
The last mistake leading to a fast defeat. Better is 18... Bc5.
19. d6!
A colourful position. The bishop is closed in a pen.










   
19...Qe8
If 19... f5, then White wins with a piece sacrifice - 20. Qd1! fxe4 21. Qd5+ Kh8 22. Nxe5.
20. b4 Qe6 21. Rac1 b5 22. Na5 Qa2+ 23. Rf2 Qe6 24. Rc6
Black resigned. 1-0
