|Sep-27-04|| ||latvija: 8. Qc2 Ne4 at the time of this game, this variation was not thoroughly analyzed.
10. Nxe4 10.Bd3 is considered better,
11. Nd2 11. Qxe4 Qb4 and 12....Qxb2 is better for black.
18. Qc4 Petrov has not played the opening very well. The queen moves c2-c4-d4 and d4-c3-c4 are artificial and a waste of time.
19. 0-0 White is forced to relinquish something. If 19.exf4 Nxe4 20. 0-0 Bh3.
19....Rf8 Hoping a big result from the attack Makarczyk doesn't play 19....fxe3 20. fxe3 Nxe3 or 19....f3 20. gxf3 Bh3, however after 21. Qxe4 or 21. f4 black might not be very happy with with the material.
21...Qg5 21....e3 22. fxe3? Nxe3! 23. Nxc6 Qg5! 24. Qe4! Bf5!! would be better; however, white does not have to play 22. fxe3.
22....Qe5 What happened to the attack? What is correct play?
23...Rb8 To make this move and to develop the bishop, without worrying Nxc6 black played 22....Qe5. But, it did not help that black played 21...Qg5. In general, black lost his way after 21. Nd4.
29. Nc3 White stands better.
32...e3 Makarczyk is unable to save the pawn, for a mistake made earlier.
40....a5 Black is grasping.
41....Kd7 At this point, the game was adjourned. When Petrov sealed his move, he wrote an impossible move 42. b5-b4. When play resumed and the envelope was opened, Makarczyk asked the judge to award him the game. The judge refused and an argument ensued. The discussion was so animated and lively that Petrov's teammate A. Strautmanis could not concentrate and lost his game. Petrov prevailed in his game.
