1. c4 { Notes by Raymond Keene. } Nf6 2. Nc3 b6 3. Nf3 {3 e4!? is more energetic} 3...Bb7 4. d4 e6 5. g3 {? This variation is fairly harmless. More aggressive are 5 e3 and 5 Bg5.} 5...Bb4 6. Bd2 c5 {! Black already has an excellent position.} 7. a3 {Perhaps 7 dxc5 could be tried.} 7...Bxc3 8. Bxc3 Ne4 9. Qc2 {?! More accurate is 9 Rc1.} 9...Nxc3 10. Qxc3 Qf6 {! This aggressive move forces weaknesses in White's pawn structure all over the board. } 11. Rd1 Bxf3 12. Qxf3 Qxf3 13. exf3 Nc6 14. dxc5 {?! This adds the b-file to Black's gains. 14 d5 was the last chance.} 14...bxc5 15. Bg2 Rb8 {Black obviously has a great advantage, but what distinguishes this game, after White's inept handling of the opening is the way in which Black forces entry into the white fortress. The elements to be combined are pressure in the b-file, an outpost for the black rook on b3 and the unchallengeable black knight on d4. It is interesting that in spite of the numerous exchanges the cumulative effect of all these pluses leads to black victory in a mere seven moves.} 16. Rd2 Rb3 17. Kd1 Ke7 18. f4 Nd4 19. Kc1 h5 {!! By threatening ...h4-h3 Black forces White to weaken his pawn on g3.} 20. h4 Rhb8 {The threat is now 21...Rxg3! 22 fxg3 Nb3+ 23 Kc2 Nxd2 24 Kxd2 Rxb2+-+.} 21. Bf1 Rf3 {! This is totally decisive. White has no defence to the twin threats of ...Nb3+ and ...Rxa3.} 22. Kd1 {If 22 Kb1 Rxa3 all the same.} 22...Rxa3 {The White fortifications have crumbled for if 23 bxa3 Rb1 mate.} 0-1
