1. d4 d5 2. c4 e6 3. cxd5 exd5 {It is never easy when you are much
higher-rated than your opponent and you play with the black pieces. My plan
was to play some Noteboom to mix things up but my solid opponent decided
otherwise.} 4. Nf3 Nf6 5. Nc3 Bb4 6. Qc2 {After a ragozin transposition we got
into a Nimzo Indian 4.Qc2 line when I tried a rare move.} Ne4 $5 {[%cal Gf7f5,
Gc8f5,Rc1g5]} 7. Nd2 $6 {The best reply is probably e3, while a3 is also
played but after Bxc3 black gets a good grip on the light squares.} Bf5 8. Qb3
Nc6 9. e3 Bxc3 $6 ({I thought the d5-pawn was sort of hanging but Black should
not be afraid} 9... O-O $1 10. Ndxe4 (10. Qxd5 $2 Nxd4 $19 11. exd4 Nxc3 12.
Qxd8 Raxd8 13. bxc3 Bxc3 {[%csl Ra1]}) 10... Bxe4 11. f3 Bg6 $15) 10. bxc3 O-O
11. Nxe4 Bxe4 12. f3 Bg6 13. Be2 (13. Qxb7 $1 Na5 $13 {and black has some
compensation on the b-file and some lead in development but white sould have
an advantage.}) 13... Na5 14. Qb4 c6 15. O-O b5 16. a4 a6 17. axb5 axb5 {Now
black has a nice control on the light squares, while white cannot make good
use of his bishop pair.} 18. Re1 Re8 19. Bf1 h6 20. Re2 {[%cal Ge2a2]} Nc4 21.
Rxa8 Qxa8 22. Re1 Bc2 23. Qc5 ({The best move for the engine is} 23. Bxc4 $5 {
although from a practical point of view means a lot of sufference for white
and good initiative against his king for black.  Only a e4-break would give
some play for white but it is difficult to archive in good conditions.}) 23...
Re6 24. g3 $2 {This innocent-looking move that seems to help white's bishop to
get into the game, instead provoke great issues for the f3-pawn.} Qe8 25. Kf2
Rf6 26. Ba3 $2 {White tries to activate his dark square bishop threathening
Qe7 but he is leaving unguarded the d2 square for the black knight.} Nd2 27.
Qe7 Qc8 28. Bg2 Nxf3 29. Bxf3 Qf5 {As we can see white is already busted after
a few careless moves on his kingside, without a chance of counterplay after
black's b5.} 30. Qxf6 Qxf6 31. Kg2 Qf5 32. Bb4 Kh7 33. Rf1 Be4 34. Bxe4 Qxe4+
35. Kf2 Qc2+ 36. Kg1 Kg6 {White tries to archive some kind of a fortress but
again his light squares let him down and black king just marches to h3.} 37.
Rf2 Qc1+ 38. Kg2 Qxe3 39. Rf4 f5 40. Ba5 Qe2+ 41. Rf2 Qe4+ 42. Kg1 Kh5 43. Rf1
