  • 1. e4 e5 2. Nb1c3
    Vienna
    • 2... Ng8f6 3. Bf1c4 c6
      ? Not best, I even knew it at the time, piece development is better
      • 4. d4 Qd8c7 5. Ng1f3 exd4 6. Nf3xd4 Bf8b4 7. O-O O-O 8. f3 b5 9. Bc4b3 a5 10. a3 Bb4xc3 11. bxc3 Bc8a6
        Threatens discoveries vs. the Rook but also protects b5 to allow a c5 push
        • 12. Rf1e1 c5 13. Nd4f5 c4
          Completing my opening plan, to lock out his Bishop
          • 14. Bb3a2 Rf8e8 15. a4 Nb8c6
            Although I have now finally completed piece development, bxa4 was available
            • 16. axb5 Ba6xb5 17. Bc1g5 Re8e6 18. Nf5d4 Nc6xd4 19. cxd4
              Now White has a strong centre, Black's play is limited
              • 19... h6 20. Bg5h4 Re6b6 21. d5 g5
                ? d6 was better
                • 22. Bh4f2 Rb6b7 23. e5
                  d6 would have prevented this move, now Black is getting cramped
                  • 23... Nf6h5 24. g3 Nh5g7 25. c3 d6 26. Bf2d4 Ra8e8 27. exd6
                    ? f4 was better to maintain the centre... this was White's biggest asset
                    • 27... Re8xe1 28. Qd1xe1 Qc7xd6 29. Bd4xg7
                      ? Giving up the unopposed dark-squared bishop for a weaker knight is a further example of letting your opponent off
