Oleksienko Mikhailo - Naumkin Igor
Moscow Open 2008 (Round 5), 2008



Very powerful game was lead by the GM from Ukraine Ц Mikhail Oleksienko
1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.Nd2 Nc6 4.Ngf3 Nf6 5.e5 Nd7 6.Be2 f6 7.exf6 Qxf6 8.Nf1 Bd6 9.Ne3 b6 10.0Ц0 Bb7 11.c4 Ne7 12.b3 h6 13.Bb2 0Ц0 14.Rc1 Rad8




15.Rc2!
with an idea с4-с5 as required
15...dxc4




It is a responsible decision. Black decided to open a position, especially for a bishop. However, Mikhail plays on the center
16.d5! Qg6 17.Rxc4
Now, white rook is ready to move on g4, and then by means of support Bb2, to attack the king...
17...Bf4




18.Rxf4!
It appears, that black has nothing to do... And white plays rather well!
18...Rxf4 19.dxe6 Qxe6?!
[In any case black should have choosen 19...Bxf3 20.Bxf3 Qxe6 21.Nd5 Rxf3 22.Nxe7+ Qxe7 23.Qxf3 and the Bishop is very strong]
20.Nd4!
It is obvious, that black has some troubles...
20...Qf7 21.Bc4 Nd5 22.Nxd5 Bxd5 23.Nc6!+- Bxc4 24.Nxd8 Qe8 25.bxc4 Qxd8 26.Qd5+ Rf7 27.Re1 Qf8 28.Re6
it is impossible to save the game...
28...Nc5 29.Ba3! c6 30.Rxc6 Qe8 31.Kf1! Kh8 32.Bxc5 bxc5 33.g3 Rd7 34.Re6 Qf7 35.Qa8+ Kh7 36.Qe4+ g6 37.h4 h5 38.Re5 Kg7 39.Rxc5 Re7 40.Re5 Rc7 41.Re6 1Ц0
Good game. Igor have nothing to do but to say: I'll be back...




Iljushin Alexei - Inarkiev Ernesto
Moscow Open 2008 (Round 5), 2008



Ernesto, at least has returned after defeat in the first round. And receiving the positions, fights up to the end, using maximum of chances from any position.
1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 g6 3.Nc3 Bg7 4.e4 d6 5.h3 0Ц0 6.Be3 c5 7.d5 b5!
Going to Volga gambit
8.cxb5 a6 9.bxa6 Qa5! 10.Qd2 Nbd7 11.Nf3 Bxa6 12.Bxa6 Qxa6




Black has intercepted the initiative Ц white king has already to be at g1. And now white is forced to play the worse ending.
13.Qe2 Rfb8! 14.Qxa6 Rxa6 15.Rb1




15...Nb6 16.Nd2 Na4
there is a standard maneuver to weaken the pawns structure
17.Ke2 Nd7
[17...Ne8!?]
18.Rhc1 Nxb2 19.Rc2




19...f5!? 20.Rcxb2 Rxb2 21.Rxb2 Bxc3 22.Rb7 Nf6 23.Rxe7 Rxa2

44...h5?!
There is the only moment in the game where Ernesto played imprecise.
45.h4!
making it harder for black
45...Rd4 46.Rg2 Bxh4 47.Rh2 Rg4 48.Rh1 Rf4 49.Rh3 Re4 50.Kd5 Ra4 51.Kc6 Rd4 52.Rh1 Rd6+ 53.Kb5 Bf6 54.Rxh5 Kxe6 55.Rh7 Rd1 56.Kc4 Be7 57.Rh3 Rxd7




It is difficult to play having rook against rook+bishop...
