Qc2 c6 {6...c5 Movin g the pawn to c5 in one move is an improvement on the game continuation.} 7. e3 b6 {Played in order to develop his light squared bishop, which is blocked by the e6 pawn.} 8. a3 { A waste of time. A better idea was developing the rook with 8.Rc1 or 8.Rd1.} 8... Bb7 9. cxd5 exd5 10. Bd3 c5 11. Nb5 {White should not allow the Black pawns to advance. 11.dxc5 bxc5 would saddle Black with hanging pawns.} 11... Nc6 12. Bf5 g6 13. Bd3 {13.Bh3 would keep the bishop on the h3-c8 diagonal.} 13... Rc8 {A mistake which allows White to give Black hanging pawns. 13...c4 14.Be2 a6 15.Nc3 b5 would give Black the initiative on the queenside.} 14. dxc5 bxc5 {The pawns at c5 and d5 are known as hanging pawns because they cannot be defended by other pawns and are targets for enemy operations. 14... Bxc5 would give Black active piece play for his isolated d-pawn.} 15. O-O Qd7 { 15...Qb6 would be better as the queen would be less vulnerable to attack.} 16. Be2 Rfd8 17. Rfd1 { White has the advantage because of his pressure against the hanging pawns.} 17... Ne4 18. Nc3 Nxc3 19. Qxc3 d4 20. Qc2 { 20.exd4 Nxd4 when Black's pieces spring to life.} 20... Na5 21. Ne5 Qe6 22. Qa4 Bf6 {An oversight which costs Black the game. 22...Qb6 Removing the queen from the h3-c8 diagonal was better.} 23. Bg4 { With this attacking move White wins the exchange.} 23... Qb6 24. Bxc8 Bxc8 25. b4 Bxe5 26. Bxe5 Nc6 27. bxc5 Qxc5 28. Bxd4 Nxd4 29. Rxd4 { Black resigned due to his material deficit.} 1-0
