Another win in the Petroff

October 15, 2010

My opponent, usually a Sicilian player, surprised me with the Petroff! Replay.
1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nf6 3. Nxe5 d6 4. Nf3 Nxe4 5. d4 d5 6. Bd3 Be7 7. O-O O-O 8. c4 c6 9. Re1 f5 10. Qb3
(10. Nc3)
10… Nf6
(10… Qb6)
11. Nc3 Re8?
11… Kh8! was the right move. Black is already in a difficult position and this only makes it worse.
12. cxd5 cxd5 13. Nxd5 Nxd5
(13… Kh8)
14. Bc4 Nc6
(14… Kh8 15. Bxd5 Nc6 16. Bxc6 bxc6)
15. Bxd5+ Kf8??
This loses immediately, but the position is already lost. (15… Kh8 16. Bxc6 bxc6 17. Ne5 Qd5 18. Qxd5 cxd5 19. Nc6) (15… Kh8 16. Bg5 Bxg5 17. Nxg5 Rf8 18. Nf7+ Rxf7 19. Bxf7)
16. Bg8! 1-0
