(1) Race,Doran (2008) - Tica,Juan (2190) [A08]
WOCC Swiss Tournament (3), 14.02.2012
1.Nf3 d5 2.d3 Nf6 3.Nbd2 c5!? [First critical moment I was thinking in Yugoslav Variation against KIA 3...c6 4.g3 Bg4 5.Bg2 Nbd7 But the game Svidler,P (2739) vs. Kramnik,V (2781) 64th ch-RUS | Moscow RUS | Round 1| 8 Aug 2011 | ECO: A07 | 1-0 gave me a bad impression.]
4.g3 Nc6 5.Bg2 e5 6.e4 Be7 7.0-0 0-0 So I choose the classical main line against KID with a minus tempo.I decided for this system because I am d4 player for long time and I have some experience in this line as Corcoran,Paul-Tica,Juan 0-1 A08 WOCC Summer Tournament 2011.
8.Re1 d4 9.Nc4 Qc7 10.a4 Ne8! I started my plan with this typical manouever in KID tabiyas: Ne8-f6-Nd6-Be6-b6-a6-b5.
11.h4?! The beginning of a plan with some justification positional but risky.Enterprising but weakens castle.
11...f6 12.Kh2 Nd6 13.Nfd2 Be6 14.Bh3 This was the whole idea of white: h4-Kh2-Bh3-Bxh3 leaving the black with a bad bishop in e7.
14...Bxh3 15.Kxh3 f5 the only way to tackle the risky white plan: King exposed+Weakening of the Light Square Complex+Underdeveloped.
16.Nxd6 Bxd6 17.exf5 Rxf5 From here I started to understand that I was to play dynamically and vigorously because if I did not get nothing white is going to keep lasting structural advantages: Strong Knight in e4+ Good Bishop.We always have to play what the position requires despite our own style and preferences.
18.Ne4 Raf8 19.Qg4 Kh8? From here I started to plan my attack with Qd7-h5-Rf5 move with discover check.OTB I saw this line: 19. Qd7! 20. Nxd6 h5! +/- 21. Qxf5 forced but 19. Qd7 20. Bh6!(stop h5) discouraged me.For this reason, I thought preparatory moves as: Kh8-Be7.However, the computer found solution: [19...Qd7! 20.Bh6 the most tenacious (20.Nxd6 h5! (Fritz 13: 20...h5 21.Qxf5 Rxf5 22.Nxf5 Qxf5+ 23.Kg2 c4 24.Bg5 cxd3 25.cxd3 Qxd3 26.Ra3 Qc2 27.Raa1 -2.74/27 ) 21.Qd1 Rf3+ ) 20...R8f7! 21.f4 Qe6! 22.Bg5 h5!! Fritz 13: 23.Qe2 Rxg5+ 24.Kh2 Rg4 25.f5 Rxf5 26.Rf1 Ne7 27.a5 c4 28.a6 b6 29.Rf2 g6 30.Raf1 Nd5 31.Nxd6 Qxd6 32.Rxf5 gxf5 33.Rxf5 e4 34.Rg5+ Rxg5 35.hxg5 exd3 36.cxd3 -5.34/21 ]
20.Bd2?! OTB I did not know what happened: my opponent didn't feel danger or had a cold defense.
20...c4!? Interesting from a human standpoint but strictly bad. The idea was to push c4 while could and open another attack front.So I could play all over the board and exploit to the maximum activity of my pieces, create complications and better conditions for my attack on the kingside. [20...Qd7! Fritz 13: 21.Nxd6 Qxd6 22.f4 exf4 23.Bxf4 Qd7 24.Kh2 Nb4 25.Re2 h5 26.Qf3 Nd5 27.Re4 Kg8 28.a5 Qb5 29.b3 Qb4 30.a6 Qc3 31.Qd1 b5 32.Qc1 R5f6 -1.23/21 ]
21.dxc4? Bb4? I missed it Qd7 again!( three times in arrow) [21...Qd7! Fritz 13: 22.Bg5 h6 23.f3 Bc7 24.Re2 Qf7 25.Nf6 Rxf6 26.Bxf6 gxf6 27.Qf5 Rd8 28.Rf1 Ne7 29.Qd3 Qe6+ 30.g4 f5 31.c5 e4 32.Kg2 -1.44/21 ]
22.c3 [22.Bxb4 Fritz 13: 22...Nxb4 23.Qe2 h6 24.Ra3 a5 25.Kg2 Qc6 26.Rf1 Kg8 27.f3 R5f7 28.Raa1 Rd8 29.Rfd1 Rdf8 0.65/23 ]
23.h5?? Inexplicable blunder why his position had defense. [23.cxb4? h5 24.Qxf5 (24.Qd1?? Rxf2+ 25.g4 R8f3+ ) 24...Qxf5+-+ ; 23.Kg2? Rxf2+! 24.Nxf2 Rxf2+ 25.Kh3 Rh2+! 26.Kxh2 Qxg4 27.cxb4 e4-+ ; 23.Qd1? Rxf2+ 24.g4 R8f3+ 25.Ng3 h5-+ ; 23.Ng5?! dxc3 24.bxc3 (24.Bxc3 Bxc3 25.bxc3 g6-> ) 24...Kg8 25.cxb4 h5-+ ; 23.Bg5! Be7-> with a lot of play yet; 23.f4!? h5 24.Qe2 exf4-> with a lot of play yet]
