GAME 17

Burn - Nenakarov

St Petersburg 1909


Ruy Lopez

1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 a6 4.Ba4 Nf6 5.Nc3 b5 6.Bb3 Be7 7.d3 d6 8.a4 Rb8 9.axb5 axb5 10.O-O O-O


White:Burn; Black:Nenakorov

10...Bg4 11.Be3 Nd4 12.Bxd4 exd4 13.Ne2 c5 would be more energetic. Black would thereby obtain a promising position.

11.Ne2 Bg4 12.c3 Qc8 13.Ne1 b4 14.f3 Bd7 15.f4 exf4 16.Bxf4 bxc3 17.bxc3 Ne5 18.Bc2 Ng6 19.d4 Re8 20.Ng3 Bc6 21.Bc1 Ra8 22.Rb1 Rb8 23.Rxb8 Qxb8 24.Nf3 Bb5 25.Re1


White:Burn; Black:Nenakorov

Better would have been 25.Bd3 since Black, by changing Bishops with 25...Bxd3 26.Qxd3

25...Nd7 26.Bb3 Qd8 27.Nf5

Here 27.Bxf7 Kxf7 28.Qb3 would have gained an important pawn.

27...Bc6 28.Nxe7 Qxe7 29.Ng5 Nh8

 Not by any means 29...d5 30.Rf1

30.Bc2 h6 31.Nf3 Ng6 32.c4 Ndf8 33.d5 Bd7 34.c5

In order to obtain some attack after 34...dxc5. Black's pawn at c5 would, in any case, be but of little value.

34...Ne5 35.Nxe5 Qxe5 36.Be3 Ng6 37.Rf1

1/2 - 1/2

2h. 23 - 2h. 27
