Huebner vs Kasparov
[Event "Hamburg"] [Site "?"] [Round "1"] [White "Huebner"] [Black "Kasparov"] [Result "0-1"] [ECO "A21"] [Opening "English: King's, 2.Nc3 d6 3.d4"] 1. c4 e5 2. Nc3 d6 3. d4 exd4 {On the one hand, Black concedes the center with this move. On the other hand, he gains time since the queen will be exposed at d4. 3...Nd7 4.Nf3 Ngf6 5.e4 g6 6.Be2 Bg7 7.O-O O-O This could have transposed into the King's Indian Defense. However, I decided to take the game elsewhere.} 4. Qxd4 Nf6 5. g3 {My opponent readies the g2-square for his light-squared bishop, which will be placed on the longest diagonal, and the important central squares e4 and d5 will be in its domain.} 5... Nc6 {Developing a piece with a threat, as a general rule, is a good idea. In this case, White must answer the attack on the queen.} 6. Qd2 Be6 7. Nd5 {Moving a p iece twice in the opening is generally considered a bad idea. But in this case the threat against the pawn at c4 was most annoying. 7.b3? d5! 8.cxd5 Nxd5 Here if White moves the bishop to b2 Black is still ahead in development.} 7... Ne5 8. b3 { 8.Nxf6+ Qxf6 9.b3 Nd3+! 10.exd3 Qxa1 An unpleasant fate for White!} 8... Ne4 { Once again the Black army is moving forward while attackng the White Queen.} 9. Qe3 Nc5 10. Bb2 c6 11. Nf4 Ng4 {Again the White Queen is under attack.} 12. Qd4 Ne4 13. Bh3 Qa5+ 14. Kf1 Ngxf2 { Black's pieces are swarming around the enemy king.} 15. Bxe6 fxe6 16. Nxe6 Kd7 {17. Nxf8 Raxf8 would only lose more quickly for Huebner.} 17. Nh3 Nxh3 18. Qxe4 Re8 19. Nc5+ Qxc5 20. Qg4+ Kc7 21. Qxh3 { Now I begin the final wave of attack against the White monarch.} 21... Be7 22. Bxg7 Rhf8+ 23. Bxf8 Rxf8+ 24. Ke1 {White is vulnerable on the dark squares due to the fact that his dark- squared bishop is gone. Observe how Black utilizes this asset to his advantage.} 24... Qf2+ 25. Kd1 Qd4+ 26. Kc2 {Huebner tries to keep his King off the dark squares. Yet this becomes an impossible task.} 26... Qe4+ 27. Kd2 { Going back to the first rank would have cost White his rook at h1.} 27... Bg5+ 28. Kc3 Qe5+ {If 29.Kc2 Qxe2+ 30.Kb1 Rf2 and White will be checkmated.} 0-1
