Notes by Boris Schipkov

1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. d4








   
3...exd4
The Scotch Game.
4. Nxd4 Nf6 5. Nxc6 bxc6 6. e5 Qe7 7. Qe2 Nd5 8. c4 Ba6 9. b3 g6 10. f4








   
10...Bg7?!
A dubious move. The good alternatives are 10...d6, 10...f6 and 10...Qb4+.
10.. d6 11. Qf2 Nf6 12. Be2 dxe5 13. O-O Ne4 with nice counterplay in Nedev, T - Kramnik, V, Tromso 2014.
10...f6 11. exf6 (11. Ba3 Nb4 12. Bb2 Bh6=) 11...Qxe2+ 12. Bxe2 Kf7 13. Bd2 Re8 14. Nc3, with equality in Jeanne, M - Daurelle, H, Caen 2011.
10...Qb4+ 11. Bd2 Qb6 12. Qf3 (12. Nc3 Bb4=) 12...Nb4 13. Kd1 Bb7 14. Nc3 c5 15. Qe3 Qe6 16. Nb5 Na6 17. Kc2 Bg7 with equality in Baratosi, D - Amin, B, Gaziantep 2008.
11. Qf2!
White obtains a small advantage, intends to develop pieces.
11...Nf6 12. Ba3
The move 12. Be2 is also playable, 12...d6 (12...Ne4) 13. Ba3 O-O 14. Nc3, with a clear edge to White in Svidler, P - Rizouk, A, Shenyang 2000.









   
12...d6?
A mistake. Black could try 12...Ne4 or 12...Ng4, though after 12...Ng4 13. Qe2 Qe6 14. Nc3 O-O-O, Shabalov, A - Granda Zuniga, J, Buenos Aires 2005, White can play 15. O-O-O! Bh6 16. g3 Nxe5 17. Ne4 d6 18. Bg2 Rhe8 19. Rhe1 Kb8 20. Kb1, with an advantage thanks to the powerful bishops.
13. Nc3!
White develops the knight and plans to castle queenside.
13...O-O 14. O-O-O!
This move is even stronger than 14. Be2 Nd7 15. O-O with a clear edge to White in Svidler, P - Rizouk, A, Shenyang 2000.









   
14...Ne8
14...Ng4 is met by 15. Qf3 Bc8 16. h3 Qh4 17. g3 Nxe5 18. fxe5 Qg5+ 19. Kc2 Qxe5 20. Bb2, with a big advantage to White.
15. g3 Bb7
If 15...Bc8 then 16. Bg2 Bd7 17. Nb5.
16. Bg2 f6 17. exd6 Nxd6
Or 17...cxd6 18. Rhe1 Qc7 19. f5.
18. c5 Nf5 19. Rhe1 Qf7








   
20. Bf1
Winning.
20...Rfd8 21. Rxd8+ Rxd8 22. Bc4 Rd5 23. Qe2
Black resigned. 1-0
