Nc3 d5 4. cxd5 Nxd5 5. e4 Nxc3 6. bxc3 Bg7 7. Nf3 { In this position Black usually strikes at the White center with 7...c5 or 7... O-O 8.Be2 c5.} 7... b6 8. Bb5+ c6 9. Bc4 O-O 10. O-O Ba6 11. Bxa6 Nxa6 12. Qa4 {12.Bg5 Qd7 13.Qd2 is also better for White due to his strong center and the Black knight which is out of the game at c6.} 12... Qc8 13. Bg5 Qb7 14. Rfe1 e6 15. Rab1 c5 {A natural and practically forced move. Since, 16.c4 was threatened. 15...h6 16.Be3 is better for White due to his control of the center.} 16. d5 Bxc3 17. Red1 exd5 18. exd5 Bg7 {The strong passed d-pawn and the unfortunate placement of Black's pieces compensate White for the small material loss.} 19. d6 f6 {Now White would have a pretty good position after 20.Bf4, but I preferred a more energetic and interesting continuation.} 20. d7 fxg5 {20...Rad8 21.Qc4+ Kh8 22.Ne5 with the threat of 23.Nf7+. 22...fxg5 23. Nf7+ Kg8 when White has a forced mate in three.} 21. Qc4+ Kh8 22. Nxg5 Bf6 { 22...Bd4 23.Rxd4 cxd4 24.Qxd4+ Kg8 25.Ne6 is winning for White due to the dual threats of mate on g7 and the pawn promotion.} 23. Ne6 Nc7 24. Nxf8 Rxf8 25. Rd6 {With the terrible threat of 26.Rxf6 followed by the promoting of White's d- pawn. 25.Qxc5 Qxg2+ 26.Kxg2 bxc5 27. Rb7 Ne6 28.Rd6 Nf4+ 29.Kf1 Bd8 30.Rxa7 is also better for White, but I wanted more!} 25... Be7 26. d8=Q Bxd8 27. Qc3+ Kg8 28. Rd7 Bf6 29. Qc4+ Kh8 30. Qf4 { The forcing variation has concluded and White will regain his piece.} 30... Qa6 31. Qh6 {Black resigned since he has no good defense against the intended 32. Qxh7+ mate.} 1-0
