Annotated by Aziz Shukor and Hairulov - in italic

1. e4 e6 2. d3 d5 3. Nd2 Nf6 4. Ngf3 g6 5. e5 Nfd7 6. d4 c5 7. c3 Nc6 8. Bd3 Qb6
9. O-O
Hairulov: White sac his d4-pawn for initiative. This idea is frequently seen in the French Advance variation ( Milner-Barry Gambit) 9...cxd4 white has to give up pawn. If 9 bxc5 Bxc5 attack both f2 and e5 pawns10. cxd4 Nxd4 11. Nxd4 Qxd4 12. Nf3 Qb6 13. h4 Bg7 14. Re1 O-O 15. h5 Nc5 …purposely provoke Be3 because the Queen has done its jobe at b6 and should move to enable Queen side development 16. Be3 Qa5 17. Bc2 Ne4 18. Bd4 Bd7 black give back the pawn to expedite its development- strong post for Bishop at c6 and to gain d file 19. Bxe4 dxe4 20. Rxe4 Bc6 21. Bc3 Qc7 22. Re3 Rfd8 23. Qe2 Rd7…Bh6 looks like an interesting option 24. hxg6 hxg6 25. Ng5 Rad8 26. Qg4 Rd3 27. Qh4 a5 if ….Rxd3? 28 Bb4! 28. Rae1 b5 29. Rxd3 Rxd3 30. Bd4 Bd5 31. a3 Qc4 32.Qf4 Qc7 initially I want to play f6 but cannot because of checkmate.. f6 33 exf6 Qxd4 34 f7+! 33. b4 axb4 best move is f6! 34.axb4 f6!
35. Bb6 white can't avoid material losses anyway. For eg, 35 Nf3 g5 36 Qg4 f5 37 Qxg5 Bxf3 38 gxf3 Rxd4. Its interesting to quote white says after the game-"white sent all the heavy artilerries but in the end was defeated by a pawn!" 35...fxg5 0-1
