{ 5 years ago, Nigel played his last game in the Corus A group against me,
welcome back Nigel! 🙂 }

1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 e6 3. Nf3 ( { in 2005 I had chosen to play } 3. Nc3 d5 ( {
in our last encounter, London 2009, Nigel preferred } 3… Bb4 { and
although he was almost in zugzwang later , I managed succesfully to blow
myself up…. }) 4. cxd5 exd5 5. Bg5 c6 6. e3 Bf5 7. Qf3 Bg6 8. Bxf6 Qxf6
9. Qxf6 gxf6 10. Nf3 { but he didn’t really enjoy this endgame 🙂 }) 3…

h3 Nf8 { Fortunately Nigel doesn’t have Kasparov as his trainer, I am
pretty sure, he likes how Magnus played against me: } (10… Ne4 $5 { in
fact this move could be a serious attempt to change the nature of the
“traditional” Queen’s Gambit positions, and also not a bad one. } 11. Bxe4
(11. Bf4 { was the safe choice but after } 11… Ndf6 12. O-O Bf5 {
followed by g6 and Black has no problems. }) 11… dxe4 12. Nxe4 Qa5+ 13.
Kf1 Bf8 { Already after he had played …Ne4, I realised this must be his
idea, but anyway, what should I do? And besides a pawn is a pawn, so let’s
not be afraid for once in our lives 🙂 } (13… Qf5 { was how Piket played
against me in the World Cup in Groningen 1997, but in that game I managed
to stabilise the postion and just to be a pawn up. } 14. Bxe7 Rxe7 15. Nfd2

c5 { with very nice compensation }) (14. g4 $5 { is the suggestion of my
silicon friend, so it has to be analysed seriously 🙂 }) 14… Qf5 15. Nfd2

Rd7 Rb4 $15 { Van Wely-Carlsen,M/Wijk aan Zee 2010 }) 11. Bf4 a5 { This is
an interesting waiting move to discourage White from castling queenside,
the only drawback is, Black won’t have any counterplay in the centre by
playing c5, because the b5-square would remain permanently free. } (11…
Ng6 12. Bh2 Bd6 (12… Be6) 13. Bxd6 Qxd6 14. O-O-O) (11… Bd6 12. Bxd6
Qxd6 13. O-O-O) (11… Be6 { was the choice of another expert, Arthur
Jussupow, later he sold me some sacrifices on h3 and e3… }) 12. O-O Ng6
13. Bh2 Bd6 14. Bxd6 Qxd6 15. Rfe1 $5 { A strange move, but trying to
prevent Black’s plan of putting a knight on e4. } 15… Be6 $6 { This looks
natural, but if Nigel had a deeper look at the position, he would have
understood that } (15… Bd7 $1 { was the right move; later in the game you
will see why. }) (15… Qe7 $6 16. e4 { – the idea of Re1! }) 16. a3 { Now
White will start his classical minority attack. } 16… Re7 17. Rab1 Rae8
18. b4 axb4 19. axb4 Bd7 { Now Black has to lose a tempo in order to play
…Ne4. } 20. b5 Ne4 21. bxc6 bxc6 22. Rb6 Nxc3 23. Qxc3 Qf6 24. Bxg6 $1 {
This bishop is not needed anymore, and Black’s knight was about to get
active via h4. Apart from that we want to play good knight vs bad bishop…
} 24… Qxg6 25. Kf1 f6 26. Ra1 Qh5 27. Ne1 Qf5 28. Kg1 Qg5 $2 { Probaby
the last and fatal mistake. Maybe Nigel was thinking according to the
Russian chess school, that when you have only one weakness (c6) you should
be able to defend. I don’t know, but you need to have really good defensive
skills for that and be ready to suffer for hours and hours. Not my cup of
tea, and definitely also not Nigel’s , so I am a bit surprised, he didn’t
go for counterchances with } (28… g5 $1 { of course there is no way back
after this move, but at least Black will have some fun (Rg7, g4, h5, h4 ,
etc.). }) 29. Kh2 Qf5 30. Nd3 Qe6 31. Kg1 Rc8 32. Rb7 Rf7 33. Raa7 Be8 34.

get to the 7th rank. } 39… Qc8 40. Rb7 Bf7 41. Qa7 Rf8 42. Nd7 Re8 43.
