  • 1. d4 Ng8f6 2. c4 d5
    QGD transposing to the Marshall defence
    • 3. Nb1c3 e6 4. b3
      Not so good... moves like Nf3 or even cxd5 would have been better
      • 4... dxc4 5. bxc4 Bf8b4
        As an apparent weakness is now visible
        • 6. Bc1b2 Nf6e4 7. Qd1d3 Ne4f6
          ? Waste of tempo... f7-f5 was playable
          • 8. e4 O-O 9. Ng1f3 c5 10. d5 exd5 11. cxd5
            Black has a passed pawn down the side, White has one down the centre
            • 11... Rf8e8 12. Nf3d2
              necessary move... an extra defender of e4 but also allowing the Knight on c3 to move
              • 12... Bc8f5
                Exploits the pin, but is easily defendable
                • 13. f3 Nb8a6
                  ? Ok but a bit awkward... d7 was a better square
                  • 14. Bf1e2
                    Breaks the pin, creating a threat to the Bishop but also enabling castles
                    • 14... Bf5g6 15. O-O Ra8c8 16. Nd2c4 Bb4xc3 17. Qd3xc3
                      Now a potential checkmate threat is there
