1.d4 Nf6 2.Nf3 g6 3.Bf4 Bg7 4.e3 0-0 5.h3
A good, safe opening against the King's Indian Defense.

5...b6 6.c3 Bb7 7.Nbd2 c5 8.Nb3?!
[Better is to continue development with 8.Bd3 d6 9.0-0 Nbd7 10.e4 ]

8...d6 9.Be2 Nbd7 10.dxc5?!
White should not give up his center so easily. [Better is 10.0-0 ]

10...bxc5 11.Bb5 Qb6
Due to White's inferior moves, Black has completed his development easily and will have multple threats against White's position from hereforth.

12.Bxd7 Nxd7 13.0-0 a5 14.a4 Ba6 15.Qc2?!
This just gives Black an easy exchange advantage plus the initiative, which is converted without any problems. [15.Re1 Rab8 16.Nfd2 c4-+ ]

15...Bxf1 16.Rxf1 Rfb8 17.Nfd2 c4 18.Nd4 Qxb2 19.Qxb2 Rxb2 20.Nxc4 Ra2 21.Nc6 e5 22.Bxe5 Nxe5 23.N4xa5 Rxa4 24.Nxe5 Bxe5 25.Nc6 Ra1 26.Ne7+ Kf8 27.Nd5 Bh2+ 28.Kxh2 Rxf1 29.Kg3 Ra2 30.f3 Rff2 31.f4 f5 32.Kh4 Rxg2 33.Nf6 Kg7 34.Ne8+ Kf7 35.Nxd6+ Ke6 36.Nc4 Rac2 37.Ne5 Rxc3 38.Nf3 h6 39.Nd4+ Kf6 40.Nxf5 Kxf5 41.e4+ Kxf4 42.e5 Kf5
[Of course, not 42...Kxe5?? Stalemate!]
