[Event "Carlsbad"] [Site "?"] [Round "0"] [White "Capablanca"] [Black "Becker"] [Result "1-0"] [ECO "D30"] [Opening "QGD: 3.Nf3"] 1. d4 d5 2. c4 e6 3. Nf3 Nd7 4. Nc3 Ngf6 5. Bf4 {White hopes to profit from Black's knight being committed to the passive square d7.} 5... dxc4 6. e3 { Note that White doesn't get anything from advancing his knight, as shown in the variation: 6.Nb5 Bb4+ 7.Nd2Ne4} 6... Nd5 {Black decides to eliminate any future threats to c7, but he loses time doing so.} 7. Bxc4 Nxf4 8. exf4 Bd6 9. g3 Nf6 10. O-O O-O 11. Qe2 b6 12. Rfd1 Bb7 13. Rac1 a6 14. Bd3 {The bishop 't doing anything on c4, so White takes aim at h7 and opens his rook's line to c7. } 14... Bb4 {Black hopes to counterattack on the a8-h1 diagonal, but White can answer any threats there easily, showing Black's idea to be a simple loss of time.} 15. Ne4 {Threatening to trade off the only defender of h7.} 15... Qd5 16. Nfg5 {Before trading off Black's knight White prepares to take the a8- h1 diagonal away from Black after a later Nxf6+ and Be4.} 16... Ne8 {Black sees the threat to c7, not the stronger threats on the a8- h1 diagonal and the kingside.} 17. Nxh7 f5 {17...Kxh7 18.Nf6+} 18. Nhg5 {Black missed this move. Now taking White's knight on e4 loses another pawn, so Black has no good defence to 19.Qh5. If you don't see White's wins after 18...Nf6, 18...fxe4 or 18...Qxd4, copy the game and try them out against Gambit.} 1-0
