Timofeev Artyom - Iordachescu Viorel
Moscow Open 2008 (Round IV), February 5, 2008



In this game one of the leaders of Russian chess - Artem Timofeev,made I think all the natural moves, won one of Moldavian leaders - a very strong GM Viorel Iordachescu very effective
1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3 Bb4 4.f3 d5 5.a3 Be7 6.e4 00 7.e5 Nfd7
[7...Ne8 is more popular]
8.cxd5 Nb6
Logic novelty, after which...I couldn't find any good counterplay for black! [In the not so famous game between Pannello- Kluss there was another move 8...exd5 9.Nxd5 and black was playing without a pawn]
9.Bd3
[Of course, white shouldn't move 9.dxe6?! Bxe6 and black has strong compensation and good perspectives]
9...Nxd5
[9...exd5 10.f4]
10.Qc2!




Bh7 is a threaten right now
10...h6
[If black tries to play for an activity after 10...c5 than after 11.Bxh7+ Kh8 12.Nxd5 Qxd5 13.Be4 Qxd4 14.Bf4 white would get strong position(14.f4!?) ; the position arrising after 10...f5 can play only the real mastodons.Maybe this is the correct way to hold the position?]
11.Nxd5!
Simple move, which defines further plans. In a case of ed -white's idea will be standard f4-f5-f6. And in a case of of Qd5 - black has very poor development.
11...exd5 12.f4




12...c5
Absolutely unclear what black can do here. [12...Bg4 13.h3! Bh4+ 14.Kf1 followed by f5; probably it was better to play 12...f5 but in this case white would prepare g2-g4 and break the k-side defense. 13.Nf3]
13.f5
Absolutely unclear what black can do here.
13...Bg5 14.Nf3 c4 15.Be2 Bxc1 16.Rxc1 Nc6 17.00 b5?




After this move the position is already lost. Black's king is too weak. [The only move was 17...f6!? trying to hold the position 18.e6 b5 and the position is not so easy as it seems]
18.f6! gxf6 19.Qd2 Kg7 20.exf6+ Qxf6 21.Ne5 Qe6 22.Rc3! Nxe5 23.dxe5 Qxe5 24.Re3 Qd6 25.Qd4+ f6 26.Bh5! Kh8
[26...Qb6 27.Qf4 Be6 28.Kh1]
27.Bg6! Qb6 28.Qf4 Kg7 29.Bh5
Black hasn't any defense
29...Be6 30.Kh1! Bf7 31.Rg3+ Kh7 32.Qg4 10
