Ian Hunnable (165) – Steve Gilmour (151)[A31]

W&W Ch (7), 21.03.2006
Notes by Ian Hunnable
1 Nf3 Nf6 2 d4 c5 3 c4 cxd4 4 Nxd4 e5 5 Nb5
In a previous meeting with Steve in this line, I here played the insipid 5 Nc2, and never had more than a draw, though Steve tried for another 60 moves to win it.

5…d5 6 cxd5 Bc5

5…d5 is a gambit as here 6…Nxd5 meets with 7 Qxd5 Qxd5 8 Nc7+ winning a piece.

7 e3 0-0 8 Be2

The book continuation is 8 N5c3 e4 9 Nd2 Re8 10 Qc2=

8…Nxd5 9 a3 Qa5+ 10 Bd2 Qb6 11 Qc2 Rd8 12 N5c3 Nxc3 13 Nxc3 Bf8 14 0-0 Bf5?

Steve was here struggling to chart a course and goes astray. He needed to find 14…Be6 15 b4 a5 16 bxa5 Qxa5 (or 16…Qb3 17 Qxb3 Bxb3 18 Nb1 Nc6 19 Bc3 Be6 20 Nd2 Nxa5 21 Rfb1=) 17 Bd3 g6 18 Rfb1=

15 Qxf5 Rxd2 16 Bc4±

Even better is 16 Rad1 Rxd1 17 Rxd1 g6 (17…Nc6 18 Bc4+-) 18 Qc8 Kg7 (18…Qc6 19 Rd8 Qxc8 20 Rxc8 a6 21 Nd5+-) 19 Nb5 Be7 20 Nc7 Qc6 21 Bf3+-

16…Qc7

Marginally better is 16…Qg6 but White can still exploit Black’s lack of development: 17 Qxg6 hxg6 18 Rad1 Rd7 (18…Rxd1 19 Rxd1 Nc6 (19…Be7 20 Nd5 Bd8 21 Nf4 Bf6 22 Nxg6 e4 23 f3 exf3 24 gxf3 Nc6 25 Rd7+-) 20 Rd7±)  19 f4±

17 Ne4! Qd7

Allowing a quick finish, but 17…Rd7 18 Rac1 Qb6 19 Rfd1 Rc7 20 Ng5 Qg6 21 Qxe5+- does not change the result.

18 Qxf7+ Qxf7 19 Bxf7+ Kxf7 20 Nxd2 Nc6 21 Ne4 1-0
