Nc3 Nc6 3. g3 {The Closed Sicilian has been my pet for the past years after a few pointers from NM Rich Kmiec.} d6 4. Bg2 Bd7 5. d3 Rb8 { Black adopts a strange setup declining from playing the natural g6, Bg7; He opts instead for inmediate counter play on the queenside.} 6. Be3 Nf6 7. h3 a6 8. Nge2 e5 9. Qd2 Be7 10. O-O O-O 11. f4 {After having developed; I begin with probably "The most logical" plan in this position and very thematic in this opening.} b5 12. f5 Nd4 13. g4 b4 14. Nd1 Ne8 {He begins a very dubious idea by playing Ne8. The idea of g5 worried him and reacted incorrectly.} ({Fritz 8: } 14... h6 15. c3 bxc3 16. bxc3 Nxe2+ 17. Qxe2 Bc6 18. g5 hxg5 19. Bxg5) 15. Nc1 f6 16. c3 Nc6 17. h4 g6 18. Bh6 {Fritz catches an idea which I didn't really consider during the game. The idea is to give up the pawn on g4 for piece activity by playing fxg6 Bxg4 Nf2!? activating White's pieces for a future attack againt's white's king.} ({Fritz 8:} 18. fxg6 Bxg4 19. Nf2) 18... Rf7 19. Nf2 Bf8 20. Be3 {I saw that I could take on g6 and penetrate with the queen on h6, but since I failed to see anything concrete I decided to maintain the tension.} ({Fritz 8:} 20. Bxf8 bxc3 21. bxc3 Rxf8 22. fxg6 hxg6 23. Qh6 Rf7 24. Nb3 Ne7) 20... Be7 21. Nh3 Qc8 22. Ne2 Rb7 23. Ng3 Qb8 {Qb8?! My oppponent' s position has not been lost but it sure has been very difficult to play. As soon as I saw Qc8?! I knew that my opponent was running out of ideas. This plan of intending to penetrate through the b-file is very slow! which gives me time to set-up an attack against his king.} 24. Rf2 {Rf2 defends from any penetration on b2 and also creates the posibility of playing Raf1 when I'm soon looking for a g5 break.} bxc3 25. bxc3 Rb1+ 26. Rxb1 Qxb1+ 27. Rf1 Qb5 { Now my opponent's position only relies on whether or not he has a chance to play c4 under good circunstances.} 28. g5 c4 29. d4 $1 { Trying to limit himself from any possible counter play.} exd4 30. cxd4 Qb4 31. Qxb4 {Here with 7 minutes left to achieve move 40 and make time control I fail to consider Qc1!? with a plus. Now I decided to only go into a slightly better endgame where he now has good drawing chances.} ({Fritz 8:} 31. Qc1 fxg5 32. hxg5 c3 33. Qd1 Ng7 34. f6 c2 35. Qc1 Bxh3 36. Bxh3) 31... Nxb4 32. Rc1 Bb5 33. a4 Bxa4 34. Rxc4 d5 35. Rc8 Kg7 $4 {Here I have misplayed the position better was 36.exd5! with a fine position for White. Now after Rc8 I have given up my slight advantage and he has a good chance with Bd7!} ({Fritz 8:} 35... Bd7 $1 36. Rc3 dxe4 37. Bxe4 Bd6 38. Bd2 a5 39. Re3 Kg7 40. Kg2 gxf5 41. Bxf5 Bc6+) 36. gxf6+ Nxf6 37. e5 Ng4 38. f6+ Nxf6 39. exf6+ Bxf6 {After this mini combination winning a piece for 2 pawns with 10 seconds left I make time control and play the best move on the board h5! creating a matting net.} 40. h5 $1 {After this mini combination winning a piece for 2 pawns with 10 seconds left I make time control and play the best move on the board h5! creating a matting net.} h6 41. hxg6 Kxg6 42. Nf4+ Kh7 43. Nxd5 {After all of these virtually forced moves 43. Nxd5! not with the idea of winning a pawn but even stronger.} Nxd5 44. Be4+ {Fritz 8:} Ne7 (44... Kg7 {[%emt 0:00:00]} 45. Nh5# { [%emt 0:00:00]}) 1-0
