( 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 +/- )
15...Rg6!?
( 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! +/- )
16.Bf4 Be7 17.b3 N (D)

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 +/- )
17...b4 18.Na4 c3
Now Black has a very imposing passed pawn
19.Nc5 Bc8 (D)

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 = )
20.Bc4 Qa5 21.Nd3 Bb7 22.Ne5 Rg7
( If 22...Rg8 , then also I had planned 23.a3 bxa3 24.b4 with lines similar to the current game )
23.a3! (D)

The start of a long sequence, breaking up Black's pawns and culminating in an attack on the King
23...bxa3 24.b4! Bxb4
Now that Black's Bishop has left his King to fend for himself, let us concentrate on the key square e6
25.Qb3 Qb6 (D)

26.Bh6!
( Possible was 26.Rb1 Nxe4 27.Qxb4 Qxb4 28.Rxb4 f6 += but I wanted more )
26...Rh7
( 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! )
27.Bg5 Be7
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 +/- )
28.Qxc3
Quite surprisingly, I couldn't find any defence for Black
28...Nxe4 29.Qe3 Nd6 30.Bxe7 Kxe7 31.Qg5+ f6 32.Qg6 Rah8 (D)

33.Bxe6!
Finally, e6 is captured!
33...Qd8
( 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!
