[Event "Belgrade"] [Site "?"] [Round "0"] [White "Agdestein"] [Black "Kasparov"] [Result "0-1"] [ECO "E60"] [Opening "King's Indian: 3.g3"] 1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 g6 3. g3 c5 4. d5 d6 5. Bg2 Bg7 6. Nh3 {The knight is hoping to get to f4 to overprotect d5, and restrict Black's pawn to e6. Later, White may play his h-Pawn to h4 and h5, followed by an attack on g6. On the other hand, this move neglects the d4 square.} 6... b5 7. cxb5 Qa5+ 8. Bd2 { 8.Nc3? Nxd5 White is swimming in rough waters.} 8... Qxb5 9. Bc3 Ba6 10. Na3 Qb6 {The whole idea of putting the knight at h3 has not panned out.} 11. O-O O-O 12. Qd2 Nbd7 13. Rab1 Rab8 {White must deal with the pressure on b2.} 14. b3 Bb5 15. Rfe1 Ng4 16. Bxg7 Kxg7 17. Nc2 a5 18. f3 Ngf6 19. Nf2 Ba6 20. f4 Rfc8 21. e3 a4 22. g4 axb3 23. g5 Ne8 24. axb3 h5 25. gxh6+ Kh7 26. Kh1 Nef6 { Only 26 moves have been played, but we were both running out of time, having just 3 minutes left for 14 moves. My Norwegian opponent has the advantage here since his king is safer.} 27. e4 { If he can get this pawn to e5, he may be able to do some real damage.} 27... c4 28. e5 {Here we go!} 28... cxb3 29. Nd4 {29.exf6 Rxc2 30.Qxc2 bxc2 31.Rxb6 Nxb6 32.fxe7 Nc4 33.Be4 Ne3!! The threat of 34...Rb1 is winning for Black.} 29... Rc4 {When short of time, tactics are everything. If he has to worry about his pieces then he can't spend precious seconds thinking about strategy.} 30. Nc6 {This mistake gives me plenty of chances. He should have just taken the pawn at b3.} 30... Rc2 31. Qe3 Qxe3 32. Rxe3 Rb6 {The position is getting messier. Agdestein gets my knight, but the initiative swings back to me.} 33. exf6 Nxf6 34. Ne4 {Probably 34.Kg1 was best.} 34... b2 35. Nxf6+ exf6 36. Be4 { White may be a piece ahead, but I have a monster pawn at b2!} 36... Rc1+ 37. Re1 f5 {This must have come a surprise to my opponent. I give up one powerful passed pawn, but get another in return.} 38. Rbxc1 bxc1=Q 39. Rxc1 fxe4 { My pawns are much stronger than my opponent's.} 40. Re1 Bc4 { The time control has been reached and the rest is just a matter of technique .} 41. Ne7 f5 42. Rg1 e3 43. Re1 {43.Rxg6 Bxd5+! 44.Nxd5 Kxg6 45.Nxb6 e2} 43... Rb3 44. Kg2 Kxh6 45. Kf3 e2+ 46. Kf2 Rh3 47. Rg1 Rxh2+ 48. Kg3 Rh5 49. Nc8 Kg7 50. Nxd6 Ba6 51. Ne8+ Kf7 52. Nc7 Bc4 53. Rc1 g5 54. Kf2 gxf4 55. Ne6 { 55.Rxc4 Rh2+ 56.Ke1 f3 Even though White has an extra knight, Black wins. If you don't believe me, try defending the position again.} 55... Rh2+ 56. Kg1 Rh4 57. Nd4 0-1
