1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.Nf3 b6 4.g3 Bb7 5.Bg2 c5 6.d5 exd5

7.Ng5 [More usual move here is 7.Nh4 b5 8.cxd5 d6 9.0–0 Nbd7 10.a4 a6 (10...bxa4 11.Ra3±) 11.e4 g6 12.Qe2 bxa4 13.Re1 Bg7 14.Bf4 Qb8 (14...Ne5? 15.Bxe5 dxe5 16.Nf3±) 15.Na3 0–0 16.Nc4 Ne8 17.Rxa4 Bc8 18.Ra2 Nb6 19.Na5 Bd7 20.Nf3 Bb5 21.Qc2 Nf6 (21...Qc7 22.Nd2 Nf6 23.Ndc4±) 22.Nc6± with big advantage, Karpov,A-Ljubojevic,L/Amsterdam 1981] 7...h6 8.Nh3 Qc7 9.cxd5 d6 10.0–0 g6 [Better was not to hurry with the castle 10...Nbd7 11.e4 b5 12.f4 a6 13.Nf2 c4] 11.e4 Nbd7 12.Nc3 a6 13.f4! [Not necessary to lose time for preventing b6-b5,as after 13.a4 c4 squares b3 and d3 would become targets for Black Knight.] 13...Bg7 14.Re1 0–0


[It is necessary to be real prophylactical player to avoid e4-e5 with the paradoxical 14...Qb8 ] 15.e5! Typical central break,which happened in thousands games. 15...Nh7 [After 15...dxe5 16.fxe5 Nxe5? wins 17.d6] 16.e6 Ndf6


17.g4! Sometimes Koneru plays really very energetically.Pawn e6 is the nail in Blacks position. 17...fxe6 [Only chance was to play own game 17...b5 ] 18.Rxe6 [Still a lot of fight was expected after 18.dxe6 Bxg2 19.Kxg2 Qb7+ 20.Kg1 Rae8 21.f5 gxf5 22.gxf5 d5 as White far pawns are blocked.] 18...Rae8 19.f5 g5 20.Nf2 b5 21.Be3 [Possible was 21.Qe2 b4 22.Ncd1 Rd8 23.Ne3] 21...b4


22.Ne2 [Very difficult plan of activity on both flanks was the best 22.Na4 Rf7 23.a3 a5 24.axb4 axb4 25.h4!] 22...Nd7 23.Ne4 Ne5 [In such cases it is necessary to develop the badly placed pieces 23...Nhf6 24.N2g3 Nxe4 25.Nxe4 Nf6] 24.N2g3 Nc4 25.Bf2 White doe not care about b2 pawn-improvement of the pieces is the most important task. 25...Nxb2 26.Qc2?! [More exact was 26.Qe2 Bxd5 27.Rxe8 Rxe8 28.f6 Bxe4 29.fxg7 Bg6 30.Qxb2] 26...Nd3? [Real counterplay promised 26...Rxe6 27.dxe6 c4 28.Rf1 Be5] 27.Qxd3!


27...Bxa1 [Better was 27...Rxe6 28.dxe6 Bxa1 29.Qxd6 Qxd6 30.Nxd6 Bxg2 31.Kxg2 Nf6 32.Bxc5 Rb8 33.Nge4 with better chances for White,because of two strong central passed pawns.] 28.Rg6+! Kh8 29.Nxd6 Now white obtain the tremendous initiative. 29...Re5 30.Nxb7 Qxb7 31.Bxc5 Rf6 32.d6 Qd7 33.Ne4 Koneru improves the pposition very effectively. 33...Rxg6 34.fxg6 Nf8


35.Qf1! Simple ,but effective double attack..Mens resigne is such situations,but girls can not do it for psyhological reasons. 35...Nxg6 36.Qxa1 Qg7 37.Bd4 Kh7 38.d7 Qe7 39.Bxe5 Nxe5 40.Qxe5 1–0
