Back to blogging my games

October 15, 2010

I deviated early on from my previous games with the same opponent (it was getting boring, after all) and ended up with a different pawn structure. My position wasn’t too great, but it was equal until I went wrong with the idea of pushing for a win in a drawn position with 29…Bxc8. Replay.
1. e4 c5 2. Nc3 e6 3. f4 Nc6 4. Nf3 d5 5. e5 Be7 6. Be2 Nh6 7. b3 O-O 8. Bb2 Nf5 9. Bd3 Re8 10. Bxf5 exf5 11. d4 cxd4 12. Nxd4 Bc5 13. Nce2 Qh4+ 14. g3 Qh3 15. Qd2 a5 16. Nb5 Qg2 17. O-O-O Rd8 18. Nec3 Qxd2+ 19. Kxd2 Be6 20. Na4 Bb4+ 21. c3 Bf8 22. Kc1 g6 23. Rd2 Na7 24. Nxa7 Rxa7 25. Rhd1 Ra6 26. c4 Rc8 27. Kb1 dxc4 28. Rd8 Rac6 29. Rxc8 Bxc8 30. Rd8 b5 31. Nc3 b4
One last chance to push for a draw was to admit my erroneous approach and go with 31… Be6 32. Nxb5 cxb3 33. axb3 Rc8. The rest is easy for white.
32. Nd5 Bb7 33. Ne7+ Kg7 34. Nxc6 Bxc6 35. bxc4 Bc5 36. Rc8 Be4+ 37. Kc1 Be7 38. Bd4 a4 39. c5 Bd5 40. Kb2 f6 41. exf6+ Bxf6 42. Rc7+ Bf7 43. Bxf6+ Kxf6 44. Rb7 b3 45. axb3 axb3 46. c6 Bd5 47. Rd7 Ke6 48. Rxd5 1-0
