(1) Muzychuk,A - Batchimeg,Tugvinsug [C91]

Neva Foundation GP, 14.05.2013


1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 a6 4.Ba4 Anna s power is that she can chose different systems,and does not repeat Fischer Spanish second time,despite her clear success against Kosintseva. 4...Nf6 5.0–0 Be7 6.Re1 b5 7.Bb3 d6 8.c3 0–0 9.d4 Bg4 10.Be3 Another Fischer pet line, in which he won great game against Viktor Korchnoi in 1961 in Stockholm. 10...exd4 11.cxd4 d5 12.e5 Ne4 13.h3 [13.Nc3 Nxc3 14.bxc3 Na5 15.Bc2 Nc4 16.Qd3 g6 17.Bh6]



14.Nbd2!? Very rare move, prepared by Anna. Practically all modern players use direct [14.Nc3 which does not promise real advantage.] 14...Na5 [Here Black has two serious alternatives 14...Qd7 15.Nxe4 dxe4 16.e6 fxe6 17.Ne5 Nxe5 18.Qxh5 Nc4 19.Qg4 Qd5 20.Bh6 Qxd4 21.Qxe6+ Kh8 22.Qxe7 gxh6 23.Rxe4 Qxf2+ 24.Kh1 Qxb2 25.Rd1 with sharp,but balanced position, Schneider,I (2486)-Mueller,K (2517)/Germany 2008; 14...Nxd2 15.Bxd2 (Anna planned here to sacrifice an exchange 15.Qxd2 Bb4 16.Qc2 Bxe1 17.Qxc6 Bxf3 18.gxf3 Ba5 19.Bxd5 Rb8 20.Be4 with huge compensation.) 15...Nxd4 16.g4 Nxb3 17.Qxb3 Bg6 18.Ba5! Qd7 19.Rad1 White has some ,probably unsufficient, compensation for the pawn, Jensen,A (2245)-Kovacs,L (2340)/Copenhagen 1982] 15.Bc2 Nxd2 16.Bxd2 Nc4 


17.g4 [Some GMs prefer to keep the Bishop pair 17.Bc1 Qd7 18.b3 Nb6 19.Qe2 (19.Bd2 Qe6 20.Rc1±) 19...Rae8 20.Bd2 f5 21.a3 Qe6 22.Qd3 with clear advantage, Zaitsev,I (2390)-Gola,M (2375)/Moscow 1989] 17...Bg6 18.b3 [Here retreat was possible too 18.Bc1!? ] 18...Nxd2 [Slight advantage would keep White ,because of c file problems after 18...Bxc2 19.Qxc2 Nxd2 20.Qxd2 Qd7 21.Rac1 h5 22.Qf4 Rac8 23.Qf5] 19.Qxd2 c5 I dont believe ,that Black can survive without this move.Great Capablanca teached,that pressure on c file can be decisive. 20.dxc5 Bxc5 


21.Bf5 Typical set up. [White could play Capablancas plan here too 21.Rac1 Qb6 22.Bxg6 hxg6 23.Rc2 Rad8 24.b4 Be7 25.Rec1] 21...a5?! [It was necessary to play more dynamically here 21...Bxf5 22.gxf5 Qd7 23.Qf4 Rac8 24.Rac1 d4] 22.Re2 d4 23.Rd1 Qb6 24.Qf4 Rad8 25.Rd3 [It was better to keep possibility to double on c file. 25.Qe4 ] 25...Rfe8


26.h4 It is not clear, wheather it is best plan, as still possible was central approach ,connected with c file. [26.Rc2 a4 27.Qe4] 26...Qc7 27.Qe4 [Anna refused to play on Queens side 27.Rc2 ] 27...Qe7 28.h5 [Very strong way of attack would be 28.Bxg6 hxg6 29.Ng5 threatening f2-f4. 29...f6 30.exf6 Qxe4 31.Nxe4] 28...Bxf5 29.gxf5 Kh8 30.Qg4 [Not bad was 30.Qc6 b4 31.h6] 30...Ba7 31.Nh4?! Диаграмма


Anna tries to attack opponents King at any price.Much more unpleasant for Black was central strategy [31.e6] 31...Qc7 32.f4 [Still was better 32.e6 ] 32...f6 33.Nf3 Bb8 34.Kh1 a4 35.Rg2 [It was use the power of central passed pawn even now 35.e6 axb3 36.axb3 Qc1+ 37.Kg2 Bxf4 38.Rxd4 Rxd4 39.Nxd4 Be5 40.Nf3 Bf4 41.Kh3] 35...axb3 36.axb3 Qb7?! Диаграмма


[Better was 36...Rg8 ] 37.h6! Now White starts the final attack. 37...gxh6 [Did not help 37...Rg8 38.Rxd4 Rxd4 39.Nxd4 fxe5 40.Ne6 g6 41.Qg5] 38.Qh4! Rf8 [Or another defensive try 38...Qf7 39.Qxh6 fxe5 40.Ng5 Qg7 41.Qh5 Re7 42.Ne6 winning.] 39.Qxh6 fxe5 [Or once more 39...Rf7 40.Nh4] 40.Nh4! This typical moves now wins easily. 40...Rg8 41.Qf6+ 1–0
