Be2 O-O 6. Bg5 h6 7. Be3 e5 8. d5 c6 9. h4 cxd5 10. cxd5 Nbd7 11. h5 g5 {Forced as Black would come under a direct kingside attack if he allowed the h-file to be opened.} 12. f3 a6 13. g4 { The White pawn chain from d5-h5 holds the Black army in a complete lock. Black has no space for his pieces and must sit and wait while his opponent finds a plan of attack.} 13... b5 14. a4 b4 {The Black pawn comes rushing forward. However, it's not backed up by a single Black piece.} 15. Nb1 a5 16.

Rd2 Re7 33. e5 {White returns the e-pawn in order to promoter a series of exchanges which will reduce the game to an elementary ending.} 33... Bxe5 34. Nxe5 Rxe5 35. Qxa6 Bxa6 36. Rxc5 Bc8 37.
