C02 French Defense Advance Variation

1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.e5 c5 4.Nf3 Nc6 5.Bd3!?
>= c3, here or next.

>= ...cxd4, on this turn or the following.

6.0-0 Qb6 7.Re1
[>=7.dxc5 Bxc5 8.Qe2= but White insists on sacking.]

Mark finally accepts... [... But, instead of transposing into Glen' s GSCL game against me, with 7...cxd4 , he improves slightly.]

8.Nxd4 cxd4
With a pair of Ns off, Black can play ...Nc6, instead of ...Ng6 - which permits BxN & makes it easier for White to collect the d4P.


[This varies from the 9...a6 10.Nd2 Ne7 11.Nb3 Nc6 12.a3 Na5 13.Nxa5 Qxa5 14.Bd2 Qb6 15.Rab1 Bb5 of Gal - Mokcsay : Aggtelek 1993]

10.Nd2 Nc6 11.a3 Be7
[>=11...g6 12.Nf3 Bg7=/+ ]

12.b4 0-0-0
[>=12...0-0 ]

[>=13.b5 Na5 14.Nf3 ]

[>=13...f6 , with counterplay, was right.]

14.Bd2 Qc7??
[14...a6+/= ]

15.b5 Nb8

[16.Rec1!+- ]

16...axb6 17.Nxd4 Nc6
[>=17...Bc5+/= ]

18.Nb5 Qxe5??
[18...Qb8+/- was required. Now White wins.]

19.Na7+ Kc7 20.Nb5+
Hart repeats moves while working things out.

20...Kc8 21.Na7+ Kc7 22.Qxe5+ Nxe5 23.Rxe5 Kb8 24.Nb5 Bxb5?
[24...Bf6 was a better try. Now all Schwarcz has for defense are his Rs & that isn't much.]

25.Bxb5 Bf6 26.Bf4 Bxe5 27.Bxe5+ Ka7?
[>=27...Kc8 ]

The Black monarch is caught in a mating net & coughing up a R is the only way out.

28...Rc8 29.Rb4 Rxc2 30.Ra4# 1-0
