All lines of the Saemisch have been considered in my best CD "King's Indian Saemisch System".
6. Be3 c5








   
7. Nge2
Another continuation is 7. dxc5, Rowson, J. (2580) - Hunt, A. (2466) [E81], 4NCL 2007-8, Wokefield Park (10) 2008.
7...Nc6 8. d5 Ne5 9. Ng3 e6 10. Be2 exd5 11. cxd5 a6 12. a4

13. h3 b5 14. O-O Rb8 15. axb5








   
15...Bxb5
The alternative is 15...axb5.
16. Nxb5 axb5 17. b3 Re8 18. Ra6








   
18...Re7
White obtains a small advantage. He seizes the only open file and has two bishops.
19. Qd2 Ne8 20. Bg5
20. f4 and 20. Rc1 are also interesting.
20...f6 21. Be3 Nc7








   
22. Ra7
22. Ra2!? is worthy of attention.
22...Nf7 23. Rfa1
In the case of 23. b4 Nxd5 24. Rxe7 Nxe7 25. bxc5 dxc5 26. Qxd8+ Nxd8 27. Bxc5 Nec6 28. Rb1 Ne6 29. Rxb5 Rxb5 30. Bxb5 Nxc5 31. Bxc6 the first player has only one extra pawn.
23...f5!








   
24. R1a2
The bad 24. exf5? is met by 24...Rxe3.
24...fxe4 25. Nxe4!? Re5








   
26. Bf2
Or 26. Kh1 Rxd5 27. Qa5 Ne6 28. Qxd8+ Rxd8 29. Ra8 Re5 30. Rxd8+ Nfxd8 31. Bg1 Kf8 32. Bxb5 with a small edge to White in the endgame.
26...Nxd5 27. f4 Bh6?!
27...Rxe4 is correct, 28. Qxd5 Rxf4 29. Ra8 Rf5 30. Qc6 Ne5 31. Qd5+ Nf7, with repetition.








   
28. fxe5!!
White sacrifices his queen!
28...Bxd2 29. Rxd2 Nf4 30. Nf6+ Kg7 31. Bf3 Qb6 32. Rda2!








   
32...Qd8 33. Rd7!

33...Qf8 34. Raa7 Rd8 35. Rdb7








   
35...h6
Now Wang Hao gets a huge advantage.
36. Ne4 Kg8 37. Rxf7 Qxf7 38. Rxf7 Kxf7 39. Nxd6+ Ke6 40. Bxc5








   
40...Nd3 41. Bd4
