1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.Nd2 Nf6 4.e5 Nfd7 5.Bd3 c5 6.c3 Nc6 7.Ne2 cxd4 8.cxd4 f6 9.Nf4!? Is a sharp move. Black is "force" to sacrifice the exchange and let his king in the center. Nxd4 10.Qh5+ Ke7 11.Ng6+ hxg6
[12.exf6+ is the main line 12...Nxf6 13.Qxh8 Kf7 with complicated play.] ] 12...Qc7?? Zarul nearly lets it slip away [12...Nxe5 13.Qh3 Nxd3+ 14.Qxd3 e5-+ is winning] 13.Bxg6?? Sumant could save the game if he play 13.exf6+ Kf7 (13...gxf6 14.0-0) 14.0-0+/- 13...Qxe5+-+ 14.Be4 Nc2+ [Less advisable is 14...dxe4 15.0-0 e3 16.fxe3 Qxe3+ 17.Kh1-+] 15.Kd1 Nxa1 16.Bg6 [16.Bh7 doesn't get the bull off the ice 16...Qd4-+] 16...Qg5 [16...Qg5 17.Bb1 Qxg2-+] 0-1
