Analyze by Fritz and Hairulov

1. d4 d6 {Mas used his favourites opening.He has used this move to beat GM Ian Rogers before so i think he's quite comfortable with this opening. The advantage of this move is black can avoid heavy theoritical analysis in the more famous opening such as King Indian
Defense, The Slav or the Queen Indians.} 2. c4 e5 3. Nf3 e4 4. Ng5 f5 5. g3 Be7

not afraid of Bxa4 later because it will left the e6 square for his knight.} (

spirit of MERDEKA!!!}) 0-1
