US Amateur Teams East/Parsippany, NJ USA (6) 2006
Steve frequently faces the Exchange Variation from players seeking to draw and just as often he gets an attack against it.
Hoping to induce 9.Bxd6 Qxd6 when Black gains time developing his Queen over lines where he plays Qd7 and Qxd6.
Only now that White has committed her King, Black rushes to castle on the opposite side, incidentally threatening Bg4 and planning to meet 11.Bxd6 with 11...cxd6! controlling all of the critical central squares.
Black has already induced a weakness on the kingside. Now a pawnstorm on that side will have something to bite on.
"Please take my pawn!"
Black's kingside assault is already in full gear, while White has no immediate prospects on the other side since Black's doubled d-pawns inhibit attacks by Nc5 or c4.
"She runs but she cannot hide!"
32... Rxh4! 0-1
