1. e4 { Notes by Raymond Keene. } e6 2. d3 b5 {!? An eccentricity quite in Basman's style. However, the move also has some positional basis in that an eventual advance of the queenside pawns forms a valuable black resource against the King's Indian Attack.} 3. Nf3 Bb7 4. g3 Nf6 5. Bg2 Bc5 {?! But this is much harder to justify, since the king's bishop is normally needed on the kingside for defensive purposes.} 6. O-O O-O 7. Nbd2 d6 8. Qe2 Bb6 {Necessary if Black is to mobilise his c-pawn.} 9. Kh1 c5 10. Nh4 Nc6 11. c3 d5 12. e5 Nd7 13. f4 b4 14. Ndf3 {White's kingside attack proceeds unopposed, largely due to the absence of the useful defensive king's bishop.} 14...Qc7 15. f5 {!} exf5 16. Bf4 Rae8 17. Rae1 bxc3 18. bxc3 d4 19. c4 Re6 {Although White's e-pawn is blockaded there are other ways of prosecuting the assault.} 20. Nxf5 f6 {? Threatening to destroy White's strong point at e5, but the scheme is over-optimistic and allows the energy in White's position to burst forth by means of a positional queen sacrifice.} 21. Nxg7 {!} Kxg7 22. exf6+ Rfxf6 23. Qxe6 {!} Rxe6 24. Rxe6 {White avoids 24 Bxc7? with only rook for two minor pieces. White has now given up queen and knight for two rooks, but Black's famous king's bishop is locked out of play, while his other pieces cannot participate in the defence of his king.} 24...Qc8 25. Bh6+ Kg8 26. Ng5 {Threatening Bd5 and Rf7.} 26...Nce5 27. Bxb7 Qxb7+ {Although Black gains a temporary respite with this check his queen must immediately return to the back rank to prevent Re8+.} 28. Kg1 Qb8 29. Re7 Ba5 30. Rg7+ Kh8 31. Nf7+ Nxf7 32. Rgxf7 {! Threatening both Rxd7 and Rf8+.} 32...Bd2 {?! Obviously desperation. If 32...Qc8 33 Rxd7+- or 32...Qd6 33 Rf8+ Nxf8 34 Rxf8+ Qxf8 35 Bxf8 with a simple win in the endgame.} 33. Bxd2 Qd6 34. Rxd7 {After 34...Qxd7 35 Bh6 wins at once.} 1-0
