Nc3 c5 5. cxd5 exd5 {A mistake which weakens the Black d-pawn. 5...Nxd5 6.e4 Nxc3 7.bxc3 cxd4 8.cxd4 Bb4+ 9.Bd2 Bxd2+ 10. Qxd2 O-O With Black having a solid if somewhat passive position.} 6. Bg5 Be6 7. e4 {7.Bxf6 was a more accurate move order, for example 7...Qxf6 8.e4} 7... cxd4 {This is much too risky since Black is behind in development. 7... dxe4 8.Nxe4 Be7 with a roughly level position which is likely to become boring after a few exchanges.} 8. Qxd4 Nc6 9. Bb5 {White has pins on both of Black's knights.} 9... dxe4 { 9...Be7 would be to late: 10.exd5 Bxd5 11.Nxd5 Nxd5 12.Bxc6+ bxc6 13.Qxg7} 10. Bxf6 Qxf6 11. Ne5 {White puts further pressure on the pinned Black knight.} 11... Rd8 12. Qxe4 Bb4 13. Bxc6+ bxc6 14. Qxc6+ Kf8 {The pin has resulted in a pawn advantage to White. 14...Bd7 15.Qxf6 gxf6 16.Nxd7 Rxd7 17. Rd1 when White is not only a pawn ahead but would also have the better pawn structure.} 15. Qe4 Bxc3+ 16. bxc3 Bd5 { Through the use of this x-ray attack Black regains his lost pawn.} 17. Qe3 Bxg2 18. Rg1 Bh3 19. Rg3 Bf5 20. Kf1 h5 21. Re1 {Although Black has regained his lost pawn his position is still worse due to his king rook being out of play.} 21... a6 22. Nc6 Qxc6 { 22...Ra8 23.Qc5+ Kg8 24.Ne7+ Kh7 25.Qxf5+ leaves White a piece ahead.} 23. Qe7+ Kg8 24. Qxd8+ Kh7 25. Qd4 Qh1+ 26. Rg1 Bh3+ 27. Ke2 Bg4+ {A mistake which runs into a tactical reply. Anyway, Black was lost anyway because of his material deficit.} 28. Qxg4 Re8+ 29. Kf1 {Black resigned as he is a rook down.} 1-0
