(1) Rudd,Jack (2253) - Neverov,Valeriy (2522) [B99]
Hastings Masters Hastings (1.7), 28.12.2010
[Bill Frost]

B99: Sicilian Najdorf: 6 Bg5 e6 7 f4 Be7 8 Qf3 Qc7 9 0-0-0 Nbd7

1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 d6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 Nf6 5.Nc3 a6 6.Bg5 e6 7.f4 Be7 8.Qf3 Qc7 9.0-0-0 Nbd7 10.Be2 b5 11.Bxf6 Nxf6 12.e5
This discovered attack looks natural but now White has to take the loss of his queen into account and ensure that he has sufficient compensation.

12...Bb7 13.exf6
[Avoiding the exchange of the queen with 13.Qg3 is possible when a possible continuation would be 13...dxe5 14.fxe5 Ne4 (14...Nd7 15.Bf3 Bxf3 16.gxf3 is the alternative.) 15.Nxe4 Bxe4 16.Bf3 Bxf3 17.gxf3 when Black stands slightly better mainly because of White's fractured king side pawns.]

13...Bxf3 14.Bxf3 Bxf6 15.Bxa8
We are deep into the theory of this opening but now Black undertakes a move that is new to my database.

15...Qc4N
[Here are some other shots in this position; 15...d5 16.Bxd5 (16.Bc6+ Kf8 17.Nce2 g6 18.g3 Kg7 19.Rd3 Rc8 20.a4 b4 21.a5 Qxa5 22.Kb1 h6 23.Rhd1 Qb6 24.Ba4 Rc7 25.h4 h5 26.Ng1 b3 27.cxb3 Rc5 28.Ngf3 Qc7 29.Re3 Bxd4 30.Nxd4 Qd6 Rubinetti,J (2420)-Szmetan,J (2435) /Santos Lugares 1977/MCD/0-1 (56)) 16...Bxd4 17.Rxd4 exd5 18.Nxd5 (18.Re1+ Kf8 19.f5 h5 20.f6 gxf6 21.Nxd5 Qxh2 22.Ne3 Qe5 23.c3 Rg8 24.Rd5 Qe4 25.Rxh5 Rg3 26.Kd2 b4 27.Rc5 bxc3+ 28.Rxc3 f5 29.Rc8+ Kg7 30.Re8 Qb4+ 31.Kc2 Rg5 32.Re5 Kg6 Kort,J-Van den Berg,C/Noordwijk 1965/MCD/0-1 (53)) 18...Qc5 19.Re1+ Kf8 20.c3 h5 (20...g6 21.f5 gxf5 22.Re5 Kg7 1/2-1/2 Haag, E-Niedermayr,H/Veseli nad Moravou 1967/EXT 2001) 21.f5 Rh6 22.f6 gxf6 23.Nf4 h4 24.Rd8+ Kg7 25.Ree8 Qg1+ 26.Kd2 Qf2+ 27.Ne2 Rg6 28.g3 f5 29.Rg8+ Kf6 30.Rxg6+ Keres,P-Fischer,R/Bled/Zagreb/Belgrade 1959/Candidates/0-1 (53); 15...Qc5 16.Bc6+ Ke7 17.Bxb5 axb5 18.Ndxb5 Rb8 19.b3 Qb4 20.a3 Qc5 21.Rd3 Rxb5 22.Nxb5 Qxb5 23.Rhd1 d5 24.g3 Qc5 25.a4 Bc3 0-1 Sosa,G-Glavina Rossi,P (2255)/Neuquen 1986/EXT 1997]

16.Ne4 Qxa2 17.Nxd6+?
[17.Nxf6+ looks to be a healthy alternative when after 17...gxf6 18.c3 looks to solve the white king's uncomfortable position.]

17...Kd7 18.Bf3
[18.Be4 Kxd6 19.c3 Kc7-+ ]

18...Qa1+
[18...Kxd6 further disrupts the material imbalance and Black manages to avoid an awkward discovered check with 19.c3 Kc7 ]

19.Kd2 Qxb2
[The material defiency convinces White that further play would be fruitless after 19...Qxb2 20.N6xb5 axb5-+ ] 0-1
