Dusan Stojic vs IM Mashafizul 0-1, Round 2, Doeberl Cup 2009

Below is the Doeberl Cup 2009 , 2nd round game between Mashafizul and Aussie - Dusan Stojic. The game was a heavy theoretical game where both player follow the theory at least till move 20. White play an exchange sacrifice where black have extra piece but white have 4 extra pawns! However after Mas capture the dangerous white's pawn on g7, the game looks more comfortable to black and in the end, Mas won the game quite easily .
