GM Hedinn Steingrimsson (2544) vs.IM Mashafizul Helmi (2391)
BDO, Round 3, 18.8.09

Analysed by Hairulov and Fritz 11 and Rybka 3

1. c4 Nf6 2. Nc3 e6 3. e4 c5 4. e5 This move is a approve by theory but i don't know much about it. White push black's knight back into his initial square with his e pawn however his centre pawn will be quite shaky 4...Ng8 5. Nf3 Nc6 6.d4 cxd4 7. Nxd4 Nxe5 8. Ndb5 f6 9. f4 Nf7 10. f5 a6 11. Qa4 Nd6 quite a risky move. Fritz gave an unclear line 12. fxe6 Nxb5 13. Nxb5 Qb6 14. Bf4 axb5 15.Qxa8 Bb4+ 16. Kd1 Ne7 17. exd7+ Kxd7 12.fxe6 Nxb5 13.Nxb5 axb5!? Mas sacrifice the exchange for initiative 14.Qxa8 Bb4+ 15.Ke2 15. Bd2 Bxd2+ 16.Kxd2 dxe6+ 17.Kc2 Ne7 followed by 0-0 is not so easy to play for white 15...Ne7 16.Be3 Qc7 17.a3 and both player agreed for a draw. The position is unclear. A good result for Mas - drawing with a much higher rated player with black !
