Hairulov - Ismail (Max)

The INSOFAR Team tournament which start last night use 25 minutes rapid time control. The players is not obliged to write the moves so its difficult for me to shows the games. For round 1, i will share my own game. Hopefully in the remaining rounds, i will have the chance to be substituted so that i can record some games.

Below is my game against Ismail (Max) from the 17 Chess Club. It's been quite some time since i play in a tournament. Thanks god i 'still know' how to push the pieces :)

Hairulov - Ismail Mohamed (Max)
INSOFAR Team Tournament, Round 1, 15.10.2010

Analysed by Centaur (Rybka 4 + Hairulov)

1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 g6 3. g3 Bg7 4. Bg2 d6 5. Nf3 Nbd7 6. O-O O-O 7. Nc3 c6 8. b3 Qc7 Theory suggest ....8...Re8 or 8...e5

9. Bb2 e5 10. Qd2 Usually in this position, white will put his queen on c2 to support the e4 move. However i decide to put the queen on it neighbor square d2 which put pressure against black's d6 pawn after white play Rad1 later. 10...Ng4 10... exd4 is probably the best way to continue for e.g after 11. Nxd4 Nc5 12.Rad1 white will put pressure to black's d6 pawn and black will try to conquer the e4 square

11. Rad1 f5?!
12.e3 Rybka show a better way to continue - 12. Ng5! Nb6 (if 12... Bh6 the beast give some hot tactical moves starting with 13. d5 c5 14. Ne6 Bxd2 15. Nxc7 Bxc3 16. Bxc3 Rb8 17. Nb5 Rf6 18. h3 Nh6 19. f4 a6 20. Nxd6 Rxd6 21. fxe5) 13. d5 h6 14.dxc6!! A nice tactical 14...hxg5 15.h3 Nf6 (15...Nh6 16.Nb5 Qe7 17.Qxd6) 16.Nb5 Qe7 17.Qxg5 with more then enough compensation for the sacrifice's piece.

12... e4 13. Ng5 Ndf6 14. h3

14...Nh6 If black chooce 14... h6, i plan to reply with an interesting exchange sacrifice - 15. Ngxe4!? Nxe4 16. Nxe4 fxe4 17. hxg4 Bxg4 18. Bxe4 Bxd1 19. Qxd1 with a strong pressure over black's king position. However Rybka prefer 15.hxg4 15. hxg5 16. gxf5 Bxf5 (16... gxf5) 17. Qc2

15. d5 This give me some space and control over the e6 square but I did spend a lot of time over this move because i worried that black can use the e5 square for his knight to maneuver for e.g Nd7-Ne5-Nd3 (or Nf3). However, i think the imbalance is in my favour because of black hole on e6 ( i'm threatening Ne6 - forking black's queen and rook) and the opening my b2 bishop diaganol give me the advantage.

15...Rd8 16. dxc6 bxc6 17. c5 17. Ba3 Bf8 18.f3 looks stronger

17... d5 18. Ne2 Nf7 19. h4? Nxg5 20. hxg5 Now white g5 pawn is weak.

20...Ne8? 20... Ng4! is the correct answer for e.g 21. Bxg7 Qxg7 22. Nd4 Ne5! eying for the d3 square.

21. Nf4 Better is 21. Nd4 putting pressure over the c6 pawn and if 21... Bxd4 then 22. Qxd4 Qg7 23. Qd2

21... Qe7 22. Bxg7 defending the pawn with 22. Nh3 looks passive to me so i decide to give the g5 pawn.

22... Kxg7 23. Qd4+ Kg8 24. b4 Qxg5 Black win a pawn but white have the initiative.

25. b5 Undermined black's center pawns.

25...Nc7 probably black should have just capture the pawn with 25...cxb5

26. bxc6 Ne6? Black is in time trouble and after the game my opponent said that this move is the decisive mistake because after the move, white's queen start to penetrate into black's position. Black can probably defend with 26... Qh6 or 26...Qe7

27. Qe5 The pressure on the backward pawn - d5 grows.

27...Nxf4? Another serious mistake.

28. exf4 Qh6 29. Rxd5 Stronger is 29. c7! which win quickly for e.g 29...Rd7 (29...Rf8? 30.Qxd5+ winning the rook on a8) 30. Qe6+ Kf8 31. Qc6 winning material.

29... Qf8 30. Rfd1 Rybka suggest a stronger move 30. Rxd8! and White wins after 30... Qxd8 31. c7! Qd7 32.Rb1 (threatening 33.Rb8) 32...a5 33.Bf1! threatening Bc4+!

30... Qe8?? In severe time trouble, Max blunder big time. 31. Rxd8 1-0 Black resign.
