Kasparov, Garry (2830) - X3D Fritz [D45]
Kasparov vs X3D Fritz, New York (3) 2003

Notes by Boris Schipkov

1. Nf3 Nf6 2. c4 e6 3. Nc3 d5 4. d4 c6 5. e3 a6 6. c5!
A good anti-computer continuation.
6...Nbd7 7. b4








   
7...a5?
The decisive mistake. After this White has a simple long-range plan developing the initiative on the queenside.
Better are 7...g6 8. Bb2 Bg7 9. Bd3 O-O 10. O-O e5 11. dxe5 Ng4 12. Na4 Ndxe5 13. Nxe5 Nxe5 14. Nb6 Rb8 15. Nxc8 Rxc8, Pokorny, A - Foltys, J, Zlin 1943, 8. Rb1 Bg7 9. Bd3 O-O 10. O-O Qc7 11. Na4 Rb8 12. Qe2 e5 13. Nxe5 Nxe5 14. dxe5 Qxe5, Unzicker, W - Rautenberg, W, Oldenburg 1949;
7...Ne4 8. Bb2 f5 9. Ne2 Qe7 10. Nf4 g6 11. Nd3 Bg7 12. Be2 O-O 13. O-O g5, Gereben, E - Van Scheltinga, T, Hoogovens 1963;
7...Qc7 8. Bb2 g6 9. Bd3 Bg7 10. O-O O-O 11. Re1 e5 12. Nxe5 Nxe5 13. dxe5 Qxe5 14. Na4 Qc7 15. h3 Nh5 16. Bxg7 1/2, Kruppa, Y - Vysochin, S, St Petersburg 2003.
8. b5! e5 9. Qa4! Qc7 10. Ba3 e4?! 11. Nd2 Be7 12. b6!








   
White deadly closes the game and can attack the weak a5-pawn. Poor Fritz...
Also possible is 12. Be2 h5 13. b6 Qd8 14. h3 Nf8 15. O-O-O, Reshevsky, S - Keres, P, World Championship 1948.
12...Qd8 13. h3!
A quiet prophylactic move.
13...O-O 14. Nb3 Bd6 15. Rb1
If 15.cxd6? then 15..Nxb6, winning a queen. Cunning Fritz.
15...Be7 16. Nxa5 Nb8 17. Bb4








   
17...Qd7
White has a strategically winning position. Black has no counterplay.
18. Rb2 Qe6 19. Qd1 Nfd7 20. a3 Qh6 21. Nb3 Bh4 22. Qd2 Nf6 23. Kd1! Be6 24. Kc1 Rd8 25. Rc2 Nbd7 26. Kb2 Nf8 27. a4! Ng6








   
28. a5 Ne7 29. a6 bxa6 30. Na5 Rdb8 31. g3 Bg5 32. Bg2 Qg6 33. Ka1 Kh8 34. Na2 Bd7 35. Bc3 Ne8 36. Nb4 Kg8 37. Rb1 Bc8 38. Ra2 Bh6 39. Bf1 Qe6 40. Qd1 Nf6 41. Qa4 Bb7 42. Nxb7 Rxb7 43. Nxa6 Qd7








   
44. Qc2! Kh8 45. Rb3
Black resigned. 1-0
