Round 5 : Li Chao - Peter Svidler
In round 5, there's one unusual game between Li Chao and Peter Svider...i never played the Scotch Opening so probably i'm the one who feel it's unusual. Furthermore all of the move..except the last one 14.Bxf7 is still theory according to Fritz opening book!
Li Chao - Svidler,P [C45]
Russia-China Match (Round 5), 22.09.2008
1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.d4 exd4 4.Nxd4 Bc5 5.Be3 Qf6 6.c3 Nge7 7.Bc4 Ne5 8.Be2 Qg6 9.0–0 d6 10.Kh1 10.f3 0–0 (if 10...Bh3 white simply defend with 11.Rf2 ) 10...Qxe4 11.Nd2 Qg6 12.Bh5
12...Bg4 12...Qd3 13.Be2 Qg6 14.Bh5 ( white can hope for more with 14.Nb5 0–0 15.Nxc7 Rb8 but with no pawn centre left, his position look shaky) 13.Bxg6 13.Qa4+ is no different 13...Bd7 14.Qd1 Bg4 (14...Qd3 15.Be2 Qg6) 13...Bxd1 14.Bxf7+
White regain the pawn. ½–½
