Schipkov, Boris - Gerbakher, Mikhail [A88]
Yalta open 1988

Notes by Boris Schipkov

1. d4 f5 2. g3 Nf6 3. Bg2 g6
After 3...e6 4.c4 Black can come to the Stonewall 4...d5, the Variation 4...Bb4+, the Ilyin-Zhenevsky Variation 4...Be7 5.Nf3 0-0 6.0-0 d6, the Alekhine Variation 4...Be7 5.Nf3 0-0 6.0-0 Ne4. See my new CD "Dutch Defence A90-A99" (ChessBase).
4. Nf3 Bg7 5. O-O O-O 6. c4 d6 7. b3 Qe8 8. Nc3 c6 9. Ba3
Another move is 9. Bb2.
9...Na6
The alternatives are 9...h6 and 9...a5.
10. Qc2 Rb8 11. e4 fxe4
If 11...b5 then 12. e5.
12. Nxe4 Nxe4 13. Qxe4 Bf5 14. Qe3








   
14...Nc7
Interesting is 14...Bf6 15. Rad1 Nc7 16. Rfe1 Qd7 17. Rd2 Rbe8 18. Bb2 a6, Basin, L - Kramnik, V, Belgorod 1989.
15. Rae1 Bf6 16. h3! h5
Or 16...Qd7 17. g4 Be6 18. Ng5 Bf7 19. f4 b5 20. Nxf7 Rxf7 with some edge to White.
17. Kh2 Qf7
After 17...Qd7 18. Nh4!? (18. Ng5 b5) 18...Bxh4 19. gxh4 Rbe8 20. d5 e5 21. dxe6 Rxe6 22. Qg3 Rfe8 23. Rxe6 Rxe6 24. Rd1 Ne8 White has two bishops advantage.
18. Rd1
More precise is 18. Ng5 with a good game for White.
18...Rbe8?!
Better was 18...b5 with counterplay.
19. Ng5! Qg7 20. Ne4 Rd8
Or 20...Bxe4 21. Qxe4.
21. Nxf6+ exf6 22. d5!








   
22...c5
White has a clear advantage.
23. Qc3 Rde8 24. Rfe1 b6 25. Bb2 a5 26. Rxe8 Rxe8 27. Bf3!
A little finesse. Worse is 27. Qxf6 Qxf6 28. Bxf6 Re2 with compensation for the pawn.
27...Kf7 28. Qd2 Be4 29. Qf4 Bxf3 30. Qxf3 Rf8 31. Qf4 Ke7 32. Rd3 Kd7 33. a3! Ne8 34. Rf3 Kc7 35. Re3 Qf7

36...axb4 37. axb4 Ng7 38. Ra3 Qg8 39. bxc5 bxc5 40. Ra7+ Kb8 41. Rd7 Nf5 42. Rxd6!
It was a nice tournament. I was a sole winner with 8 points from 9 and outran 80 players from Russia, Ukraine and other republics.
42...Nxd6 43. Qxd6+ Kc8 44. Qxc5+ Kb8 45. Qb6+ Kc8 46. Ba3
Black resigned. 1-0
