1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 e6 3. Nf3 d5 The Queen's Gambit Declined. 4. Nc3 Be7 5. Bf4 O-O 6. e3 Nbd7 7. c5 c6
The move 7...Nh5 is popular, 8. Bd3 (8. Be2 Nxf4 9. exf4 b6 10. b4 a5 11. a3 c6 12. O-O Qc7 with counterplay in Leko,P - Inarkiev,E, Moscow 2014) 8...Nxf4 9. exf4 b6 10. b4 a5 11. a3 c6 12. O-O Ba6 13. Na4 Bf6 with counterplay in Aronian,L - Kramnik,V, Petrosian Memorial, Moscow 2014.
8. Bd3 Almost the same positions we see after 8. h3 b6 9. b4 a5 10. a3 Ba6 11. Bxa6 Rxa6 12. b5! cxb5 13. c6 Qc8 14. c7 b4 15. Nb5 a4 16. Rc1 Ne4 17. Nd2 Ndf6 18. Nxe4 Nxe4 19. f3! Ra5 20. fxe4 Rxb5 21. Qxa4 Ra5 22. Qc6 bxa3 23. exd5 Rxd5 24. Qxb6 Qd7 25. O-O Rc8 26. Qa6 26. Rc6! (26. Qa6 Rb5 27. Rb1 Rb2 28. Rxb2 axb2 29. Qb7 Ba3, Gyimesi,Z - Vaganian,R, Germany 2006) 26...h6 27. Rfc1 Kh7 28. Qa6 Rf5 29. Bd6! Winning, 29...Bh4 30. Qxa3 Bf2+ 31. Kh1 Rd5 32. Bf4 f5 33. Qc3 Bh4 34. Rb6 Bg5 35. Be5 Bd8 36. Rb8 1-0 Tomashevsky,E - Riazantsev,A, Moscow 2008. b6 9. b4 a5 10. a3 Ba6
10...Nh5 is also possible, 11. Ne5 Nxf4 12. exf4 Qc7 13. cxb6 Qxb6 14. Na4 Qc7, with counterplay in Carlsen,H - Dworakowska,J, Gausdal 2007.
11. Bxa6 Rxa6 12. b5! White opens the way for the c5-pawn.cxb5 13. c6 Qc8 14. c7 This pawn is strong.b4 15. Nb5 a4 16. Rc1 Ne4 17. Ng5 Ndf6 18. Nxe4 Nxe4
Probably 18...dxe4 is better, with the idea of ...Nd5.
19. f3 Ra5 20. fxe4!
   A good novelty. 20. Qe2 is worse, and after 20...Qd7 21. fxe4 Rc8 22. exd5 exd5 Black had good counterplay in Aronian,L - Adams, M, Bilbao 2013
Rxb5 21. Qxa4 Ra5 22. Qc6 bxa3 23. exd5 Rxd5 24. Qxb6 Qd7 25. O-O
25. Qa6 is more precise, 25...Qc8 (25...Rc8 26. Rb1 Rxc7 27. Rb8+ Bd8 28. Bxc7 Qxc7 29. Rc8 Qe7 30. O-O) 26. Qc4 with a clear edge to White.
Rc8 26. Rc6! g5 Or 26...h6. 27. Bg3 Bb4 28. Ra1!
   Vishy obtained a clear advantage. This is a result of his excellent home opening preparation.
Ba5? The fatal mistake in time trouble. 28...h5 is more stubborn.29. Qa6! Bxc7 30. Qc4! White wins the bishop and the game. e5 31. Bxe5 Rxe5 32. dxe5 Qe7 33. e6 Kf8 34. Rc1 1-0
