Notes by Boris Schipkov

1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 c5 3. d5 b5 4. Nf3 g6 5. cxb5 a6 6. b6 a5?!
A dubious move. Better is 6... Qxb6 7. Nc3 Bg7 8. e4 O-O 9. Be2 d6 10. Nd2 Nbd7 11. O-O Rb8 12. Nc4 Qc7 13. Bf4 Nb6 with equality in Georgiev, Kir - Topalov, V, Burgas 1992. Or 7...d6 8. e4 Bg7 9. Bc4 O-O 10. O-O Bg4 11. Qb3 Nfd7 12. Nd2 Qxb3 13. axb3 Nb6, Epishin, V - Georgiev, Kir, Germany 1997.
