[Event "Amsterdam"] [Site "?"] [Round "0"] [White "O'Kelly"] [Black "Donner"] [Result "1-0"] [ECO "A40"] [Opening "Queen's Pawn: 1...e6 2.Nf3"] {Another example of the modern treatment agains the Stonewall} 1. d4 e6 2. Nf3 f5 3. g3 Nf6 4. Bg2 Be7 5. O-O O-O 6. b3 d5 7. Bb2 Qe8 8. Ne5 Nbd7 9. Nd3 Bd6 10. c4 c6 11. Nd2 {The difference between this and the previous example is that White's c-pawn is protected by the b-pawn, and the Queen Bishop stands on b2 rather than the diagonal to h6. At b2 the Bishop has some useful functions; in particular, it makes e5 more difficult for Black} 11... b6 {The advance ... Pe5 would only weaken the d-pawn, so Black develops his Queen Bishop in fianchetto} 12. Rc1 $1 {The right tactics. White's attack must come ultimately on the Queenside and he will therefore need to keep the option of c5.} (12. f3 e5 {Black's d-pawn weakness is offset by that of White's e-pawn}) 12... Ne4 13. Nf3 Bb7 14. Nfe5 Rc8 15. f3 Nef6 16. c5 $1 bxc5 17. Nxc5 Nxc5 18. dxc5 Bc7 19. Qd4 {White's aim is accomplished. He has established a Queenside pawn majority and has blocked - at least for the time being - Black's preponderance in the centre} 19... Ba6 20. Rfe1 Bb5 21. a4 Ba6 22. Bc3 Rb8 23. Rb1 Rb7 24. b4 Bxe5 25. Qxe5 Qe7 26. Qe3 Nd7 $2 {Preparing to push the e-pawn} (26... Bc4) 27. f4 $2 {Deep in his positional plan, White overlooks the win of a piece} (27. b5 cxb5 28. c6) 27... Bc4 28. Bd4 a6 29. Rec1 Rfb8 30. Rxc4 { An exchange sacrifice which puts new life into the Queenside attack} 30... dxc4 31. Qc3 e5 (31... Nf6 32. Bxc6 (32. Qxc4 Nd5 33. Qxa6 Rxb4 34. Rxb4 Rxb4 35. e3 Qb7) (32. Be5 Nd5 $1) (32. Bxf6 $1 Qxf6 33. Qxc4 Rc7 34. e3 Ra8 35. Rd1 { giving White the best winning chances}) 32... Nd5 33. Qxc4 (33. Bxd5 exd5) 33... Rxb4 34.
