Thanks to Marcus Yeoh who sms me about this live game which can be view from the official site here

Nur Nabila Azman Hisham - Nicolas Zapata
World Youth 2009, Round 5, Girls (Under 12) 16.11.2009

1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 g6 3. Nc3 d5
Gruenfeld Defense has regained it popularity - thanks to the recent Kasparov-Karpov match ! 4. cxd5 Nxd5 5. e4 Nxc3 6. bxc3 Bg7 7. Nf3 O-O 8. Be2 c5 9. O-O Qc7 10. Qb3 Theory recommend 10...Be3 10...Nc6 11.Be3 Na5 12.Qa3 Bg4 Black intention is clear, she's willing to sac her c5 pawn to target white's d4 pawn. At the same time her g7 bishop @ Gufeld bishop help to control the a1-h8 diagonal and eyeing white's rook on a1 13. Qc1 I think white has spend to much time with her queen in the opening stage. Probably taking the pawn with 13.dxc5 is better 13...Rac8
