Fadzil Nayan - Abdul Haq

Ahmad Fadzil Nayan (IIUM) - Abdul Haq Muhammad (UKM)
MASUM , Round 6, 29.5.2010

Analysed by Abdul Haq and Hairulov in italic

1. d4 e6 2. Nf3 Nf6 3. c4 d5 4. g3

Hairulov: Haq Fadzil follow the latest trend. The Catalan is Anand main weapon in his recent match against Topalov in the 2010 World Championship Final.

4... dxc4 5. Bg2 c6  Hairulov: Topalov played 5... a6 in his match against Anand.  

6. Qc2 Abdul Haq : After the tournament end, Fadzil told me  that  he missed 6.Ne5 

6...Bb4+ Haq: Maybe Fadzil think that i will not capture the pawn and try  to hold it. However, Fadzil DO NOT KNOW THAT in UKM MASUM training  camp, our coach En Shamsuddin Mat Isa  always said ``FREE MUST TAKE``!!! So I follow coach  advice.

7. Bd2 Bxd2+ 8. Nbxd2 b5 9. a4 Haq: If white play 9. Ne5 i will answer it with 9...Nd5 . Hairulov: I think 9... Bb7 developing another piece is also ok.   

9... Bb7 10. e4 Haq: This look strong for white but at the same time black feel  better because there is no attack from white's bishop on g2  Hairulov:  10. b3 as suggest by theory is probably better. The line goes
cxb3 11. Nxb3 Nbd7 12. O-O O-O 13. Ne5 Nxe5 14. dxe5 Nd5 15. Nc5 Qe7 16. Rfc1 

10... Na6 11. O-O Nb4 Haq: I try to adjust my knight position and the same time chase white's queen. 

12. Qc3 Qe7 Haq: 12.Qc3 is welcome because i have plan 12... Qe7 and and my knight on b4 is strong!

13. Ne1?! Hairulov: White want to guard the d3 square from black's knight and open the diaganol for his bishop but probably better is to put his knight on the more active square  with 13. Ne5! 

13... a6 14. Nc2 Nxc2 15. Qxc2 e5 Haq: Black secured the center and reduce white superiority on the center. 

16. Nf3 exd4 17. Nxd4 O-O 18. Nf5 Qe5 Haq: I provoke  white to play f4  

19. f4 Qc5+  20. Kh1 Rad8 21. h3?! Hairulov: White probably afraid of black playing Ng4 but actually it not so dangerous. He can play 21. e5 Ng4 22. Bf3 Ne3? 23. Qf2 

21... Bc8 22. Nh4? Hairulov: 22. Qf2!? would keep White alive. 22...Qb4 (22...Qxf2 23.Ne7+ Kh8 24.Rxf2) 23. Nd4 

22... Rd3 Hairulov: Black's now has a commanding position.  

23. g4? Hairulov: a mistake which however missed by black  

23... Qe3 Haq :  At this time, black has to change the queen because white try to  attack black king.  Hairulov:  Haq missed 23... Nxe4! winning a pawn and destroy white's center 24. Bxe4 Rxh3+ 25. Kg2 Rxh4 26. g5 Rg4+ 

24. Rae1 Qd2 25. Qb1? losing a pawn  

25... Rb3 26. Rd1 Qxb2 27. Qxb2 Rxb2 28. e5 Nd5 29. Bxd5 cxd5 30. Rxd5?? A blunder in a difficult position  30...Bb7 White resign... 0-1

I think, Malaysian players should be brave to annotate their own games and get them publish publicly - like what Haq doing here. And then, lets other comment and gives ideas, especially strong masters.
