Linares (3) 2005

Notes by Boris Schipkov

1. Nf3 d5 2. d4 e6 3. c4 dxc4








   
4. e4
The Queen's Gambit Accepted.
4...b5 5. a4 c6 6. axb5 cxb5 7. b3 Bb7 8. bxc4 Bxe4 9. cxb5 Nf6 10. Be2 Be7 11. O-O O-O 12. Nc3 Bb7








   
13. Bf4
A novelty.
13...Bb4!
A strong response.
14. Na4
If 14. Qb3 then 14...Bxc3 15. Qxc3 Nd5 16. Qd2 Nxf4 17. Qxf4 Nd7 with chances for both sides.
14...Nbd7
The position is equal.








   
15. Qb3 Nd5 16. Bg5 Be7 17. Bd2
Or 17. Bxe7 Qxe7.
17...a6 18. b6?!
A risky continuation.








   
18...Bc6
18...Bd6 is interesting.
19. Ne5
19. Rfb1 leads to equality after 19...Bxa4 20. Qxa4 N7xb6 21. Qc2.
19...Nxe5 20. dxe5








   
20...Nxb6!!
A nice positional exchange sacrifice.
21. Nxb6 Qxd2 22. Nxa8 Qxe2 23. Nc7 Qxe5








   
24. Qg3!?
In the case of 24. Rxa6 Bd6 25. Qh3 Qe4 26. Rc1 Rb8! 27. Raxc6? (27. Kf1 Bc5 28. Rxc6 Qxc6 29. Qc3 Qxc7 30. Qxc5) 27...Qxc6! 28. Rxc6 Black mates with 28...Rb1+ 29. Rc1 Rxc1.
24...Qf5 25. Rxa6 Be4
After 25...Qe4!? 26. f3 Qd4+ 27. Kh1 Bb7 28. Rxe6 fxe6 29. Nxe6 Qc3 30. Nxf8 Bxf8 Black has some edge.
26. Ra7
26. Rfa1 is possible.
26...Bc5








   
27. Ra5?
27. Ra4 is correct.
27...Bxf2+ 28. Qxf2 Qxa5 29. Nxe6








   
29...Bxg2!
A thunderbolt! Black wins because after 30. Kxg2 (30. Nxf8 Bxf1 31. Nxh7 Bd3 32. Qe3 Qa1+ 33. Kf2 Qf1+ or 30. Qxg2 fxe6) 30...Qd5+ 31. Kg1 Qxe6 he has two extra pawns.
White resigned. 0-1
