1.e4
e6
2.d4
d5
3.Nc3
Nf6
4.e5
Nfd7
5.Nf3
c5
6.dxc5
Nc6
7.Bf4
Bxc5
8.Bd3
f6
[8...0-0?
9.Bxh7+!
]

9.exf6
Nxf6
10.Qe2
0-0
11.0-0-0
Bd7
12.Rhe1
Other possibilities here are h4, Ne5 or, for the young and fearless, g4. !2.Rhe1 is solid.

12...Rc8
Also to be considered are .... a6 or .... Qa5.

13.Kb1
Bb4
14.Bd2
Qb6
15.Be3
Qa5
[15...d4?
16.Nxd4
Nxd4
17.Bxd4
Qxd4
18.Bxh7+
]

16.Bd2
Qc7
Black has temporarily ground to a halt so White goes for it!

17.h4
a6
18.h5
Bd6
[18...Nxh5
is too risky after 19.Bxh7+
followed by 20.Rh1.]

19.g4?!
b5
[19...Nxg4
is followed by 20.Bxh7+
again but it's very unclear after 20...Kh8
]

20.g5
Nxh5?!
21.Rh1
g6?
[This allows the following exchange sac. The alternative 18. .... Be8 results in a complicated position e.g. 21...Be8
22.Qxe6+
Qf7
or 22. ....Bf7 etc. etc.]

22.Rxh5
gxh5
23.g6
Ne7?
It's difficult to find a good move for Black here but this leaves White with a huge pawn on h7 and control of the g-file.

24.gxh7+
Kh8
25.Nxb5
To clear the a1-h8 diagonal for the bishop. My best move of the game.

25...Bxb5
26.Bc3+
e5?
Black had to give up his queen on c3 to have any chance of playing on.

27.Nxe5
Bxd3
28.Nf7+
Kxh7
29.Qxh5+
Kg8
30.Nh6+
Kh7
31.Nf7+
Repeating moves while I worked it out exactly!

31...Kg8
32.Rg1+
Bg6
33.Rxg6+
Kxf7
34.Rh6+
The positions after 19.g4 and 21. .... Be8 (had Black played it) are critical. I wonder what th computer says?** 1-0**
