Round 4, 27.5.2009, 8th Asian Continental

1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 d6 3. d4 cxd4 4. Nxd4 Nf6 5. Nc3 a6 6. Be2 e6 7. O-O Be7 8. f4
Qc7 9. Kh1 Nc6 10. Be3 O-O 11. Qe1 Nxd4 12. Bxd4 b5 13. a3 Bb7 14. Qg3 Bc6 15.
e5 dxe5 16. Bxe5 Qb7 17. f5 exf5 18. Rxf5 Ne8  19. Bd3 g6 20.
Rf2 Ng7 21. Re1 f6 22. Bd6 Bxd6 23. Qxd6 Rad8 24. Qb4 Rfe8 25. Ree2 Rxe2 26.
Rxe2 Qd7 27. a4 Re8 ? 
This move caused black a pawn. Better is 27...Nf5 28.axb5 axb5 29.Bxb5 Bxb5 and white should not fall into a mating trap after 30.Qxb5 ?? Qd1+  28.axb5 axb5 29.Rxe8+ Qxe8 30.Qxb5 Now black is a pawn down and Mas has brilliantly created two connected passed pawn on the queenside.  30...Qa8?

This is probably the first serious mistake made by black. After 30... Qe3 the game is still far from over and white have to look after his back rank. 31.Kg1 ! This "low profile" king move disturb black play 31...Nh5  the problem is after 31... Bxg2 ?? white have 32. Nc7! and black will have problem to look after his bishop on g2  32...Qf3 (32... Qc6 33. Bc4+) 33. Bc4+ Kh8 34. Qf8# 32. Bf1 f5 33. Qd4 Ng7 1-0  According to the notation from the official website, the game ended here. Probably because after  34. Nc7! black will lose his bishop on c6 with 34... Qb7 35. Qd8+
