Kemeri 1937

1. e4 Nf6 2. e5 Nd5 3. d4 d6 4. Nf3 Bg4 5. c4
The main alternative is 5. Be2.
5...Nb6 6. Be2!? dxe5 7. Nxe5 Bxe2 8. Qxe2 Qxd4 9. O-O N8d7 10. Nxd7








   
10...Nxd7?!
Better is 10...Qxd7.
11. Nc3 c6 12. Be3 Qe5 13. Rad1 e6 14. Qf3
With compensation.
14...O-O-O
Interesting is 14...Nb6 15. Bd4 Qc7.
15. Bxa7 Qa5 16. Bd4 Qf5 17. Qg3 e5 18. Be3 Bb4 19. Na4 Ba5 20. f4! Bc7 21. b3 f6 22. fxe5 Qe6 23. h3!?

23...Rhg8 24. Bd4 Nxe5 25. Qc3! Nd7 26. c5 Rge8! 27. b4








   
27...Nb8?

28. Nb6+ Bxb6 29. cxb6 Qxa2 30. Qg3 Rd7?!

31...Qf7 32. Ra1 Qg6 33. Qh2 Re5 34. Ra8 Rd2?!
Losing at once. After 34...Qe4 35. Qg3 Qd3 36. Rf3 or 34...Qg5 35. b5 cxb5 36. h4 Qd2 37. Qg3 the first player has a clear edge.
