334
[Event "Bled"] [Site "?"] [Round "0"] [White "Alekhine"] [Black "Nimzowitsch"] [Result "1-0"] [ECO "C15"] [Opening "French: Winawer"] 1. e4 e6 2. d4 d5 3. Nc3 Bb4 4. Nge2 { Giving Black the opportunity to win a pawn, but the cost is very high.} 4... dxe4 5. a3 Bxc3+ 6. Nxc3 f5 {So Black has a pawn, but White has a big lead in development and the dark squares around Black's king are very weak.} 7. f3 exf3 8. Qxf3 Qxd4 {This is really asking for it, as Black must lose more time with his queen and White can occupy the open d-file soon.} 9. Qg3 {A strong double attack White will take one of the few defenders of the dark squares Black has left.} 9... Nf6 10. Qxg7 Qe5+ 11. Be2 Rg8 12. Qh6 Rg6 13. Qh4 Bd7 14. Bg5 Bc6 15. O-O-O Bxg2 {Black is still greedy, but it doesn't matter anymore.} 16. Rhe1 {White threatens to win Black's queen by a discovered attack.} 16... Be4 17. Bh5 {Now White's army overruns Black in a blitzkrieg.} 17... Nxh5 18. Rd8+ Kf7 19. Qxh5 {Black resigned because he can't hold his h-pawn: 19...h6 20.Bxh6 and 21. Rf8+, 19...Qg7 20.Nxe4 fxe4 21.Rf1+. You can work out the win after 19... Kg7 for yourself, and verify it by playing against Gambit.} 1-0
