1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 c5 3.d5 d6 4.Nc3 g6 5.e4 Bg7 6.f3 0-0 7.Nge2 e6 8.Ng3 exd5 9.cxd5 a6 10.a4 Nbd7 11.Be2 h5 12.Bg5 Qc7 13.0-0 Nh7 14.Be3 Ne5 15.h3 h4 16.Nh1 f5 17.Qd2 Qf7 18.f4 Nd7 19.Nf2 b6 20.Rae1 Bb7 21.Bf3 Rae8 22.Nfd1 Bf6? #This mistake gives Tania an opportunity to go on full attack - and attack she does, in gutsy fashion. 23.Bf2 Qg7 24.exf5 gxf5 25.Rxe8 Rxe8 26.Ne3 Rf8 27.Qc2 Bxc3 28.bxc3 Qf6 29.c4 Bc8 30.Qb1 Rf7 31.Qe1 Ndf8 32.Bxh4 Qd4 33.Bh5 Rg7 34.Rf3 Bd7 35.Kh1 Nf6 36.Bxf6 Qxf6 37.Rg3 Bxa4 38.Rxg7+ Kxg7 39.g4 Bd7 40.g5 Qd8 # 41.Qa1+! Outstanding. Tania really has to be appluaded for her courage here, because although best, this pawn grab also entails an enemy queen penetration and let's face it: a lot could go wrong if not judged to perfection. 41...Kg8 42.Qxa6 Qe7 43.Ng2 Qh7 44.Be2 Qxh3+ 45.Kg1 Qb3 46.Qa1 b5 #Vocaturo assuredly knew he was in big trouble, and now tries to draw Sachdev's attention away from his king. 47.Qf6! No such luck! 47...b4 [Even after the best move 47...Be8 Black could no longer defend. 48.cxb5 c4 49.Kf2 Qxb5 (49...c3 50.Nh4 Nh7 51.Qd8 leads to mate.) 50.Qxd6 Qb2 51.Qe5 c3 52.Ne3 and it's all over.] 48.Bh5 Nh7 49.Qf7+ Kh8 50.g6 Qd1+ 51.Bxd1 1-0
