GM Michael Adams.(2715) - IM Mashafizul Helmi (2416) 
Round 2, 18.8.2011, Metropolitan International

Analysed by IM Mashafizul in italic and Centaur (Hairulov + Houdini)

1.e4 c5 2. Nf3 d6 3. d4 cxd4 4. Nxd4 Nf6 5. Nc3 a6 6. h3 Nc6 7. g4 e6 8. Bg2 Qc7 9. f4 Nd7 10. Be3 Na5 11. O-O Be7 12. Kh1 O-O 13. f5 Ne5 14. g5 Re8 14...Qd8 - Mashafizul   

15. f6 Bf8 16. fxg7 Bxg7 17. Nce2 Nac4 18. Bc1 Ng6 19. Ng3 

19...Qc5 19... d5!? Adams suggested this. I look at this during the game but didnt actual see it proper.  20. Nh5 dxe4 21. Nxg7 (21. Bxe4 e5) 21... Kxg7 22. Ne2 Rd8 (22... Qe5 23. Nc3 b5 still looks nice for white) 23. Qe1 e5 24. Nc3 Nd6 25. Nxe4
Be6 - Mashafizul

20. c3 Nh4 21. Qh5 Ng6 22. Qe2 Nh4 23. Nh5 Nxg2 24. Qxg2 Rf8 25. Qg3 b5?? This is the decisive mistake. 25... Ne5 Houdini suggest this move first. Probably to play Ng6 next and prevent white to play Qh4 - Hairulov  

26. Qh4
 Now white have a deadly attack - Hairulov   

26...Kh8 27. Nxg7 Kxg7 28. g6 1-0 Probably Mas missed this idea. The g6 push now open the diaganol for white's Bishop to join the attack. Play might continue 28... hxg6 29. Bg5! f5 30. Qh6+ Kg8 (30... Kf7 31. Qh7+ Ke8 32. Qe7#) 31. Qxg6+ Kh8 32. Rf4

komen yang menarik abang hairul... g4 Keres Attack dalam Sicilian Scheveningen... IM Mas Guna Opening Delay Scheveningen Variasi Najdorf... gerakan biasa Kasparov... Tapi Mikey terus guna Keres Attack... banyak saya belajar dari game ini... terutama gerakan g-pawn putih... sangat2 menarik... terima kasih
