[Event "W Junior Championship Graz"] [Site "?"] [Round "0"] [White "Kasparov"] [Black "Dur"] [Result "1-0"] [ECO "E00"] [Opening "Queen's Pawn: Neo-Indian"] 1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 e6 3. Nc3 d5 4. Nf3 Be7 5. Bg5 O-O 6. e3 {The Queen's Gambit Declined, which gives Black a solid yet somewhat passive position.} 6... h6 7. Bxf6 Bxf6 8. Qd2 c6 {Although Black has the two bishops, his light squared bishop is blocked by his own pawns.} 9. h4 Nd7 {This move allows White a strong initiative on the kingside. Better was 9...g6 10.O-O-O Bg7} 10. g4 { Now it's too late to try and block the position with 10...g6.} 10... Re8 { 10...g6 would fail to block the kingside after 11.g5 hxg5 12.hxg5 Bg7 13.O-O-O} 11. O-O-O b5 {Owing to White's initiative on the kingside Black tries to counter- attack on the opposite wing. Even though it will cost him a pawn to open up the queenside, this is Black's best practical chance.} 12. cxb5 cxb5 13. Bxb5 Rb8 14. g5 {Returning the pawn in order to open up the g-file, which leads directly to Black's king.} 14... hxg5 15. hxg5 Bxg5 16. Nxg5 Qxg5 17. f4 {Clears the second rank for White's queen to attack on the h-file.} 17... Qf6 18. Qh2 g6 19. f5 Qg7 { 19...gxf5 20.Rdg1+ Kf8 21.Qd6+ Re7 22.Bxd7 Rb6 allows White to win material.} 20. fxe6 fxe6 21. Rdg1 {It's easy to see that White stands better, since Black's attack has never gotten farther than the first stage.} 21... Rf8 22. Bd3 Rf6 23. e4 e5 24. Nxd5 Rf7 25. Rxg6 { Black resigned since his queen is deflected from covering the h8 square.} 1-0
