[Event "Sarajevo"] [Site "?"] [Round "0"] [White "Petrosian"] [Black "Minic"] [Result "1-0"] [ECO "A10"] [Opening "English: 1...g6"] 1. c4 g6 2. d4 Bg7 3. Nc3 c5 4. d5 d6 5. e4 Nf6 { After 5 moves we have reached a position from the King's Indian Defense.} 6. Bd3 O-O 7. Bg5 h6 8. Bd2 e6 { Black adopts the strategy of the Modern Benoni opening.} 9. h3 exd5 10. exd5 Re8+ 11. Nge2 a6 { 11...Na6 This might be better, moving the knight to c7 before occupying a6.} 12. a4 { A preventative move with the idea of discouraging Black's intended pawn b5.} 12... Nfd7 13. f4 {This is not only a kingside attacking move but a positional move which takes away the e5 square from the Black pieces.} 13... Qh4+ { This check does not accomplish anything, since White's king is better off at f1 than on the exposed e-file. 13...Nf8 may be the best move at this point.} 14. Kf1 b6 15. Qe1 Qd8 16. g4 a5 17. Qg3 Nf6 18. f5 {With the Black knight no longer able to go to e5 White immediately launches a kingside attack.} 18... Nbd7 {Black sacrifices a pawn for play down the f-file.} 19. fxg6 fxg6 20. Bxg6 Rf8 21. Kg2 { The king could be in danger on the f-file, since there is a Black rook at f8.} 21... Ne5 22. Bd3 Ra7 {22...Nxd3 23.Qxd3 Bxg4 24.hxg4 Nxg4 Black is attacking with just a knight, supported by a rook, but the queen cannot help out: 25. Raf1 Rxf1 26.Rxf1 Qh4 27.Qh3} 23. Nf4 Raf7 24. Be2 Nh7 { Black wants to move this knight to g5.} 25. Rhf1 Nf6 {But now it returns back home. 25...Ng5 26.h4 Nh7 27.Ne6 Bxe6 28.dxe6 Rxf1 29.Rxf1 Rxf1 30.Bxf1 Qe7 31. Nd5 Qxe6 32.Be2 Nd7 33.Bd3 Bxb2 34.Bf5 Qf7 35.Qxd6} 26. Rae1 Re7 27. b3 Rfe8 28. Bd1 Nf7 29. Rxe7 Rxe7 30. Be2 {Black resigned because he is material down and without counterplay. At this level of competition that is more than sufficient reason.} 1-0
