It has got to be home prep. 11...Nxc3 12.bxc3 Bxc3 13.Ra2 Bxe4 [13...Bg6 14.Qb3 with a double attack on the bBc3 and the bPb7. 14...b5 15.Bxc3 bxc4 16.Qxb8+ Rxb8 17.Bxd4 wins for White.; 13...Bh3 14.Qb3 (14.Bxh3 Qxc4 ) 14...Bxf1 15.Rxf1 Bxd2+ 16.Rxd2 Qc5 17.Qxb7 0-0 18.Qxa8 Qxc4 19.Qxa7 leaves White an exchange up and a very promising game.] 14.Qc1 Bd3 15.Qxc3 Qxc3 16.Bxc3 Bxf1 17.Rxf1 White has a piece for three pawns. Our chess engines evaluate the position as around two pawns better for White. 17...0-0 18.Ke2 b6 19.Rd1 Na6 20.Rd6 Rfc8 21.Ne5 c5 22.a5 Nc7 23.axb6 Nb5 24.Rd3 axb6 25.Rb2 Nc7 26.Nc4 Re8 27.Nxb6 Ra6 28.Kd2 e5 29.Nd5 Ne6 30.Bxe5 c4 31.Nb4 Ra1 32.Re3 Rd8+ 33.Kc2 Rh1 34.Re2 Rdd1 35.Kc3 Rdf1 36.f4 h5 37.Kxc4 h4 38.Nd5 Rc1+ 39.Rbc2 hxg3 40.hxg3 Rxc2+ 41.Rxc2 f6 42.f5 Nf8 43.Bf4 g6 44.fxg6 Kg7 45.Ra2 Kxg6 46.Ra6 Nh7 47.Kd3 Re1 48.Ne3 Nf8 49.Ke4 Nd7 50.Rd6 Nf8 51.Kf3 Rb1 52.Kg4 Re1 53.Nd5 Nh7 54.Bg5 Re5 55.Nf4+ 1-0
