1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.Bg5 Be7 5.e5 Nfd7 6.Bxe7 Qxe7 7.f4 c5? Black should castle. Now white can play Nb5 threatening to win the exchange and Nd6 with check
8.Nf3 [8.Nb5! ]
8...Nc6 9.Be2 0-0 10.0-0 Up to this point my opponent had been playing pretty instantly and I was lagging behind in time as it has been years since I played this line.
10...f6 I could have taken on c5 first but wanted to add some tension to the position.
11.Qd2 I think that this is a lazy move. Simply connecting R, to complete the development, just ignores my last move. Now I can win a P.
11...cxd4 12.Nxd4 My opponent thought for so long about this that I had time to find Qc5 rather than simply winning P
12...Qc5 13.Rad1 fxe5 14.fxe5 Rxf1+ 15.Kxf1 Qxd4 16.Qxd4 Nxd4 17.Rxd4 Nxe5 18.Nb5 Bd7 19.Rf4 Another poor moves allows me to get rid of my problem B and exchange Rs
19...Bxb5 20.Bxb5 Rf8 21.Rxf8+ Kxf8 My N is so well placed it prevents his B from getting into the game.
22.b3 Ke7 [22...Ng4 23.Kg1 d4 A stronger variation.]
