**1.d4 d5 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3 c6 4.Nf3 Nf6 5.Bg5 h6 6.Bh4 dxc4 7.e4 g5 8.Bg3 b5 9.Ne5 Bb7 10.h4 g4 11.Be2 h5 12.O-O Nbd7 13.Qc2 Nxe5 14.Bxe5 Rg8 15.Rad1**

- ( Rajkovic-Kalezic, 2001 went 15.b3 Nd7 16.Bg3 Be7 17.bxc4 Bxh4?! 18.e5 Bxg3 19.fxg3 Qb6? 20.c5 Nxc5 21.Rxf7! O-O-O 22.dxc5 Qxc5+ 23.Kh1 +/- )

- ( Popular is 15...Nd7 as for example in Ehlvest-Stripunsky, 2003, which continued 16.Bg3 e5 17.dxe5 Qe7 18.b3 b4 19.Nd5 cxd5 20.exd5 c3 21.e6! +/- )

- enticing the pawns forward

- ( Sakaev-Khenkin, 1999 had gone 17.g3 a6 ( Possible was 17...Bb4 =+ and hence I chose to deviate ) 18.b3 cxb3 19.axb3 Bb4 20.Bd3 Qxd4? 21.Na2 e5 22.Be3 Qd6 23.Be2 Qe7 24.Nxb4 Qxb4 25.Bc5 +/- )

- Now Black has a very imposing passed pawn

- A difficult position and I spent several days looking for a move. At the moment, Black's king is caught in the centre. But within a short time, the pawns will start showing its might. Hence, time is of the essence and finally, I found Bc4

- ( If 19...Bxc5 20.dxc5 Qa5 21.a3 bxa3 22.Be3 e5 23.b4 Qc7 24.Qxc3 += )

- ( But 19...Qc8 20.Bd3 Nd7 21.e5 Rg8 = )

- ( If 22...Rg8 , then also I had planned 23.a3 bxa3 24.b4 with lines similar to the current game )

- The start of a long sequence, breaking up Black's pawns and culminating in an attack on the King

- Now that Black's Bishop has left his King to fend for himself, let us concentrate on the key square e6

- ( Possible was 26.Rb1 Nxe4 27.Qxb4 Qxb4 28.Rxb4 f6 += but I wanted more )

- ( 26...Be7 27.Bxg7 Qxb3 28.Bxb3 Nxe4 29.Ba4 Bxh4 +/- results in a very interesting position where White has a rook for 5 pawns! )

- The bishop returns, but it is too late

- ( If 27...Nxe4 28.Bxe6 Nxg5 29.hxg5 Kd8 ( 29...fxe6 30.Qxe6+ Kf8 +- ) 30.Bxf7 Kc7 31.g6 +/- )

- ( 27...Bd6 28.Bxf6 Qxb3 29.Bxb3 +/- )

- ( 27...Nd7 28.Bxe6 Nxe5 29.dxe5 c2 +/- )

- Quite surprisingly, I couldn't find any defence for Black

- Finally, e6 is captured!

- ( 33...Kxe6 34.Rfe1 +- )

- ( 33...Bc8 34.Bxc8 Nxc8 35.Rb1 Qc7 36.Rfc1 a2 37.Nxc6+ Kf8 +- )

- And my opponent promptly resigned probably because if 34...Rh6 35. Qg7+ Kxe6 36.Rfe1+ Kd5 37.Rc1 Ba6 38.Nb8!
