dxe5 Be6 9. Qe2 { Not a common move in this tabiya. Makes sense though!
White prepares to move his rook to d1 and pressure d5. } 9… Be7 10. Rd1
Na5 11. c3 { And we’re out of book. Morozevich will always make sure that
will happen early; even if he plays one of the main lines of chess. } 11…
Nxb3 12. axb3 O-O 13. Nd4 Qe8 14. f3 Nc5 15. b4 Nb7 16. Be3 Bd7 17. Na3 c6
18. Nac2 { White has achieved a slight edge. He has a nice central control,
better pawn structure and his pieces are well coordinated for the most
part. Black would like to open the position for his bishops but it does not
seem easy. } 18… a5 19. f4 Qc8 20. h3 Re8 21. Bf2 Bf8 22. Qf3 Ra6 { It’s
possible that this inaccurate move is the start of Black’s problems. In
essence, Black does not have enough resources to occupy the a-file, which
means that his rook will be stuck on a6, discoordinated with the other one
on e8. This will be important later as the rook is unable to transfer in
time to the kingside. } (22… axb4 23. Rxa8 Qxa8 24. cxb4 (24. Nxb4 $6 Nc5
$15 { [%csl Ye4][%cal Gc5e4] }) 24… Qc8 { is slightly unpleasant but
perfectly playable. Black will continue Nd8-e6 maybe attempting a c5 at
some point. }) 23. Ne3 Qa8 24. Ndc2 Qd8 (24… axb4 25. Rxa6 Qxa6 26. Ra1
$16 { is the reason why Black can’t favorably open the a-file. Since Black
can’t really ever do this his battery there seems pointless. }) 25. bxa5
Nc5 (25… Rxa5 26. b4 Rxa1 27. Rxa1 { and the control of the file is very
nice for White. This line is very similar to one considered above (after
22… axb4) but in this case of course the structure is better for Whtie
and the advatange undisputed. }) 26. b4 Ne4 27. Rd3 { Black sacrificed a
pawn to obtain a strong knight on e4. This gives him a few resources, as
now it makes sense for him to try to break in the center. However the pawn
is strong and passed. Black has chances, but White should be better. }
27… f6 28. Bh4 (28. exf6 Qxf6 { just seems too normal of a continuation
for Morozevich, but it was probably the best alternative. }) 28… g5 {
Black had to try something crazy at some point. He is forced to because if
the game remains closed, he will never be able to activate his bishops. }
29. fxg5 (29. Rad1 $5 gxh4 30. Nxd5 cxd5 31. Rxd5 Ra7 32. Qxe4 { gets a
bunch of pawns for the piece, but the pair of bishops seems pretty strong.
Since Black can play Qa8! and unpin himself, I’d take Black in this
position. }) 29… fxg5 30. Bg3 { Black’s king is a little open, but the e5
pawn is now a clear target. The pair of bishops are quickly gaining scope
and White has to be careful. } 30… Bg7 31. Bh2 Rf8 32. Qe2 Rf2 33. Qe1 {
The rook penetrates, but not with decisive effect. Actually it needs a lot
of support. Since the other rook is on a6, it doesn’t seem like it will get
it any time soon. Black continues forward on the kingside. } 33… g4 (
33… Qe7 34. Rd4 Rf4 $5 35. Nxd5 cxd5 36. Bxf4 gxf4 37. Rxd5 Ng5 { is
another crazy line that is hard to evaluate. The rook is finally coming
into play and many sacrifices on h3 are threatened. }) 34. Rd4 $1 { A
strong rook! This takes advantage of the f2-rook being overextended, and
forces it back. } 34… Rf8 35. Rad1 Qe8 36. Nxg4 Bf5 37. Nce3 Bg6 { White
is up two pawns, but things are not easy yet. The knight on g4 will be
kicked to an awkward spot soon, and the bishops threaten to become
powerful. Once e5 falls, the activity could potentially outweigh the pawn.
} 38. Nf1 (38. c4 $1 { This move gave White the necessary counterplay to
counteract the bishops. With the center disintegrating, the knight on e5
loses support and e5 will be defensible. However seeing this move with a
few minutes on the clock is not the easiest. }) 38… h5 39. Nge3 Ra7 $1 {
I like this move. It brings the rook back and prepares to swing it to the
field of action. } 40. Ng3 $1 Bxe5 41. Nxe4 { a forced continuation after
Ng3. } 41… Bxd4 42. cxd4 Qxe4 $6 { The queen actually turns out to be
badly placed on e4. The reason is that it lacks movement, and e4 belongs to
the bishop. Now Black’s pieces become awkward and it isn’t easy to see how
to coordinate them. } (42… Bxe4 43. Bd6 Rf6 44. Be5 Rg6 { was more
logical. Chances are about even. }) 43. Be5 { White controls the dark
squares, which allows him to defend his kingside which seems about to come
under much pressure. He really is banking on the passed a-pawn once he
neutralizes the activity. White has more than enough compensation for the
sacrificed exchange, it is Black that needs to prove himself. } 43… Kh7
44. Rc1 Raf7 45. Kh2 Rf2 { all very nice in appearance, but is there a real
threat? Morozevich says there isn’t – and he is right. } 46. Rxc6 (46. a6
Ra2 47. a7 Rxa7 48. Rxc6 { was stronger but the move in the game is fine. }
) 46… R8f3 { The only way to continue. The knight is threatened and
cannot move. } 47. Rc7+ (47. Nc2 $2 Rxh3+ { with mate to follow. }) 47…
Bf7 $4 { This move loses the game. The reason is that there no longer is
any threat on the e3-knight. It was imperative to play …Kh6. } (47… Kh6
48. Re7 Qh4 $1 49. Kh1 Rxh3+ 50. gxh3 Qxh3+ 51. Kg1 Be4 52. Qc1 $1 Qh1+ 53.
Kxf2 Qxc1 54. Bf4+ { is still complex. But only a computer can see all
this. }) 48. Kh1 { A weird looking move, but it wins the game. Black has no
moves, and the rook is now under attack. } (48. a6 { was also possible. }
48… Qxe3 49. Rxf7+ $18) 48… Rf1+ (48… Rxe3 49. Qxf2 $18) (48… Qxe3
49. Rxf7+ Kg6 50. Qxe3 $18) (48… Rxh3+ 49. Kg1 { is completely winning
for White. }) 49. Qxf1 Rxf1+ 50. Nxf1 { Black is at a material
disadvantage, and the queen cannot create any play by herself. This leaves
her powerless against the passed a-pawn. } 50… Kg6 51. Rc6+ Kh7 52. Ng3
Qb1+ 53. Kh2 h4 54. Ne2 Qxb4 55. Rc7 Kg8 56. a6 { Despite the wild nature
of the game, it is hard to improve with too many wild tactical variations.
Black’s fatal mistake of interposing with the bishop cost him the game. It
would have been a very different story had he played Kh6. } 1-0
