Hafishelmi (Selangor) - Abang Mohd Reduan (Sarawak) [B79]
MAKSAK 2008, Round 7, 03.08.2008

1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 d6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 Nf6 5.Nc3 g6

The dreaded Sicilian Dragon. A better prepared player can beat any strong player with this opening. 6.Be3 Bg7 7.f3 0–0 8.Qd2 Nc6 9.Bc4 Bd7 10.0–0–0 Qa5 11.Bb3 Rfc8 12.Kb1 Ne5 13.Bh6 So far so theory. After the game, Zambri Syarif my teammate said that black must play 13...Bxh6 in this line followed by the typical sacrifice on c3 with 14...Rxc3! 13...Nc4 14.Bxc4 Rxc4 Probably better is 14...Bxh6 15.Qxh6 Rxc4 15.Bxg7 Kxg7 16.h4 Rac8 17.Nb3 Qc7 18.h5 Rxc3 19.bxc3 Nxh5??

This is the decisive blunder. Probably Abang missed the 21.e5 push 20.g4 Nf6 21.e5 dxe5 22.g5 ...

22...Qxc3? Instead of losing a piece, black miscalculated and relatively lose 2 piece. Black can give more resistant with the stubborn 22...Bf5 23.gxf6+ Kxf6 And it is not easy for human player to win this game especially in short time control. 23.gxf6+ Kxf6 24.Qxc3 Rxc3 25.Rxd7 Abang Reduan could have resign here but he continue to play in hope that his kingside pawn majority can give him some opportunity to swindle the game, Hafiz however remain calm and convert the winning position easily. 25...Rxf3 26.Rxh7 g5 27.Rd3 Rf1+ 28.Kb2 Kg6 29.Rdh3 g4 30.R3h6+ Kg5 31.Nc5 Rf4 32.Nd3 g3 33.Rh5+ Kf6 34.R7h6+ Kg7 35.Rh7+ Kg8 36.Nxf4 exf4 37.Kc3 g2 38.Rg5+ Kxh7 39.Rxg2 e5 40.Kd3 f5 41.Rg5 e4+ 42.Ke2 f3+ 43.Ke3 f4+ 44.Kf2 Kh6 45.Rf5 Kg6 46.Rxf4 1–0
