Nc3 Bg7 4. e4 d6 5. g3 O-O 6. Bg2 Nc6 7. Nge2 e5 8. d5 Ne7 9. O-O Nd7 10. Be3 f5 11. Qd2 Nf6 12. f3 Kh8 13. Bh6 Bxh6 14. Qxh6 fxe4 15. fxe4 Bd7 16. h3 Neg8 17. Qe3 h5 {The open f- file favours White here, for in the long run the exchange of Rooks is inevitable, and this will reduce Black's chances of a Kingisde attack. White's chances, on the other ohand, consist of a pawn storm against Black's base (the d-pawn) and this operation will not be hindered by an exchange of Rooks} 18. Nc1 Qc8 19. Kh2 Kg7 20. Nd3 Nh6 21. Qd2 {Allows White to go ahead undisturbed on the Queenside. Fine now goes straight for his target} (21. -- Nhg4+ { the threat}) 21... Qe8 22. c5 Qe7 23. b4 Nh7 24. Qe3 Qg5 $2 {After what we have been saying, it is obvious that the exchange of Queens plays into White's hands. Black had to try to creat chances on the Kingside} (24... h4 25. g4 $2 Bxg4 $1) 25. Qxg5 Nxg5 26. b5 Rxf1 27. Rxf1 Rf8 {All according to schedule} 28. Rxf8 Kxf8 29. c6 Bc8 30. Nb4 Ke8 (30... b6 31. Na6 Bxa6 32. bxa6 $18) 31. cxb7 Bxb7 32. Nc6 a6 {This gives White a passed a-pawn} (32... Bxc6 33. bxc6 { Hopeless for Black with the Black Knights cut off by the double pawn chain on the e, d and c-files, the White pieces would have things all their own way on the far side of theboard}) 33. Bf1 axb5 34. Bxb5 Bxc6 35. Bxc6+ Kd8 36. Kg2 Ng8 37. h4 Nf7 38. a4 Ne7 39. Bb7 Kd7 40. a5 Nd8 41. a6 Nc8 42. Nb5 Nb6 43. Na7 1-0
