Nc3 Bb4 4. a3 Bxc3+ 5. bxc3 d5 6. cxd5 exd5 7. e3 O-O 8. Bd3 Re8 {The next few moves are easy to understand. White strives for the central push Pe4, Black tries to stop him} 9. Ne2 Nbd7 (9... c5 10. O-O b6 11. Ng3 Ba6 { Black trades off White's strong bishop} 12. Bxa6 Nxa6 13. Qd3 { White will soon be able to play Pe4}) 10. O-O Nf8 11. f3 Ng6 12. Qe1 c5 13. Qf2 {Reinforcing Pd4 so as to prepare Pe4} 13... Qc7 14. Bd2 b5 15. Ng3 Bb7 16. Rae1 Rad8 17. h3 { Now it seems White can play Pe4, as both Pd4 and Pe4 are protected} (17. e4 cxd4 18. cxd4 dxe4 19. fxe4 Ng4 20. Qe2 Rxd4 $1 {Ruining White's dream}) 17... Qd6 {Threatening to win a pawn and preventing Pe4} 18. Bc1 (18. -- cxd4) 18... Re6 19. Re2 Bc6 {Note Black can't doublr Rooks on the e-file, since that would relax pressure on Pd4} 20. Rfe1 Ba8 { Black has nothing constructive to do now, and so marks time} 21. Nf5 { White tries another tack. He diverts one piece from control of e4 to have d4 fully covered} 21... Qc7 22.

Ng3 Qd6 {White's exc ellent maneuvering has decoyed Black's Rook from d8 to e8, thus reducing pressure on d4} 24. Bf5 R6e7 25. e4 $1 {Finally! Now White's central expansion quickly leads to a powerful Kingside attack. True Black wins the a-pawn, but this is a comparatively small detail} 25... dxe4 26. fxe4 cxd4 27. cxd4 Qxa3 28. Bg5 {White now gives up the two Bishops in order to wreck Black's kingside pawn structure} 28... h6 29. Bxf6 gxf6 30. Nh5 Rd8 31. Nxf6+ Kh8 32. e5 Qb4 33.
