Bereolos-Georgiev

1. d4 d5 2. c4 c6 3. Nc3 Nf6 4. Nf3 e6 5. Bg5 Nbd7 6. cxd5 exd5 7. e3 Be7 8. Qc2 O-O 9. Bd3 Re8 10. h3 Nf8 11. O-O Be6 12. Rab1 Ne4 13. Bxe7 13. Bf4 Bd6 engineers the exchange of bishops more favorably for Black. 13... Rxe7 13... Qxe7 14. Bxe4 dxe4 15. Qxe4 and Nc3 still covers a2 14. b4 I didn't think 14. Nxe4 dxe4 15. Bxe4 Bxa2 16. Ra1 Bd5 was much, but the two center pawns probably give White a small advantage] 14... Nxc3 15. Qxc3 Rc8 16. a4 Qd7 17. Ne5 Qe8 18. f4 f6 19. Nf3 Qd7 20. Qc2 Rce8 21. Rfe1 Bf7 22. Kf2 Rc8 23. Rbc1 b6 24. b5 c5 25. dxc5 Rxc5 26. Qd2 Ne6 27. Bf5 Pete Karagianis suggested the immediate 27. f5 since 27... Rxc1?? 28. fxe6 so the Black knight will not be able to reach e4. 27... Bg6?! 27... Qd6 is about equal.

28. Bxe6+ consistent, but 28. Rxc5 bxc5 29. Bxg6 hxg6 30. Rd1 Nc7 31. Qc2 would cost Black material. 28... Rxe6 29. Rxc5 bxc5 30. Rc1 Qd6 31. Qc3 c4 32. Nd4 Re8 33. f5 33. a5 Be4 so I lock the bishop out first, but now I have to be careful of his queen penetrating. 33... Bf7 34. a5 h5 35. Rb1 h4

36. Nf3 some better alternatives are 36. b6 axb6 37. axb6 Qg3+ 38. Kg1, 36. Ne2, or even 36. Kg1] 36... Qg3+ 37. Kg1 Bh5 38. Qe1 Bxf3 39. Qxg3 hxg3 40. gxf3 Rxe3 41. b6 axb6 42. axb6 Re8 43. b7 43. Kg2 might be simpler 43...Rb8 44. Rb5 d4 45. Rb4 c3 46. Rxd4 Rxb7 47. Rc4 Rb2 the best try, if White is allowed Kg2xg3 then he has no problems. 48. Rxc3 Rf2 49.f4 This move may be not be necessary. It is hard to find a way for Black to make progress if White just waits. 49.Ra3 Kh7 50.Rb3 Kh6 51.Ra3 Kg5 52.Ra4 Kxf5 (52...Rxf3 53.Rg4+ Kh6 54.Rh4+ Kg5 55.Rg4+ Kxf5 56.Rxg7) 53.Rg4 g5 54.Rxg3 Ra2 55.Rg4 49...Rxf4 50. Rxg3 50. Kg2 Rxf5 51. Kxg3 is a much improved version. 50... Rxf5

51. h4?? 51. Ra3 in order to activate the rook for checks from behind should draw, but Black has practical chances. After the text, Black's task is simple. 51... Rf4 52. Rh3 Kh7 53. Kg2 Kh6 54. Kg3 Ra4 55. Rh1 Kh5 56. Rh2 Rg4+ [0:1]
