1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 c5 3.d5 e6 4.Nc3 exd5 5.cxd5 Bd6 6.Nf3 Bc7 7.Bg5 d6 8.e3 0-0 9.Bd3 Nbd7 10.0-0 a6 11.a4 Re8 12.h3 Rb8 13.Qc2 h6 14.Bh4 Ba5 15.Rfd1 Bxc3 16.Qxc3 b5 This is where I started to think a lot. [16...Nxd5 17.Bh7+ Kxh7 18.Qc2+ ] 17.axb5 axb5 18.Qa5 I decided to try to put pressure on his b5 pawn. 18...c4 This stops the bishop from attacking b5, but it is not so great because it allows Nd4. [18...Qb6! and black is OK, according to the computer.] 19.Bc2 Nc5? Now black is in trouble. He still could have played Qb6. 20.Qxd8 Rxd8 21.Nd4 Bd7 22.Nc6 Bxc6 23.dxc6 Rbc8 [23...Rb6?? 24.Rxd6 ] 24.Ra5 Rxc6 [24...b4 I planned to play 25.Bxf6 gxf6 26.Rd4 Rxc6 (26...b3 27.Bf5 ) 27.Rxc4 ] 25.Rxb5 White is much better due to having two bishops versus two knights. 25...g5 26.Bg3 Nfe4 27.Bh2 Nd3 28.f3 Nec5 29.b4 Nb2?! Hastening the end. 30.Rxd6 Rcxd6 31.Bxd6 Ne6 32.Rb8 It is over. 32...Rxb8 33.Bxb8 Kf8 34.Kf2 Ke7 35.Ke2 f6 36.Kd2 Nd8 37.Ba7 Nc6 38.Bc5+ Ke6 39.Kc3 Nd3 40.Bxd3 cxd3 41.Kxd3 f5 42.b5 Na5 43.Bb4 Nb7 44.Kd4 h5 45.g4 fxg4 46.fxg4 hxg4 47.hxg4 Nd8 48.e4 Nb7 49.e5 Nd8 50.Bd6 Nb7 51.b6 Nxd6 52.exd6 Kxd6 53.Ke4 Kc6 54.Kf5 Kxb6 55.Kxg5 Kc7 56.Kf6 Kd7 57.Kf7 1-0
