26. Bxa6?!

It appears that White has the better attacking prospects after instead 26. Bxe5! Bxe5 (26... Bxb5 27. Bxg7+ Kxg7 28. Qf3) (26... dxe5 27. Bxa6 Qxa6 28. Qe3) 27. Bxa6 Qxa6 28. Qf3 with pressure along the f-file.

26... Qxa6 27. Qxa6 Rxa6 28. Nxe5 Bxe5 29. Bxe5 dxe5 30. Rd7

30. Rd8+ Kg7 31. Rxh8 Kxh8 32. Rd1 Kg7 is similar to the game.

30... Rh4 31. Rf1 Rf4 32. Rxf4 exf4 33. Kc1 Kg7 34. Kd2 Kf6 35. Ke2 Rc6 36. Rd2 g4 37. h3

Perhaps White thought that his outside passed pawn would even the score, but the GM has judged the ending more accurately.

37... gxh3 38. gxh3 Ke5 39. Kf3 f5 40. Re2 Rc4 41. h4?

Of course, 41. exf5+ Kxf5 followed by e5 is not much of an improvement for White.

41... fxe4+ 42. Kg4 Rc8!

and White's King will be driven away from the pawns by Rg8+, after which Black will force on though for a Queen. A masterful endgame by Yudasin.

0-1

1. e4 d5 2. exd5 c6!?










This move seems tantamount to spotting White a pawn. Likely it is something that Skecic has used a lot in blitz.

3. dxc6 Nxc6 4. Nc3 e5 5. Nf3 Bc5 6. Be2

6. Bb5!?

6... Nge7 7. O-O O-O 8. d3 f5 9. Kh1

9. Re1 followed by Bf1 seems relatively safe.

9. Be3 Bxe3 10. fxe3 Qb6 is not so good.

9... a6 10. Be3 Bd6 11. d4 e4 12. Bc4+ Kh8 13. Ng5 Qe8 14. f4

14. d5 Ne5 15. Be2 (15. Bb3 Ng4) 15... N7g6 (15... f4? 16. Ngxe4!) 16. Qd4 h6 (16... Qe7 17. f4!) 17. Nh3 f4!

14... b5 15. Bb3 Na5

Surprisingly, White is already in a tough spot.

16. Be6

White likely has to give back the pawn for counterplay by 16. d5!? Qg6 17. Qd4 h6 18. Ne6! Bxe6 19. dxe6 Nxb3 20. axb3 Qxe6 21. Rfd1 Rfd8 22. Qb6

16... h6

16... b4!

17. Bxc8! Qxc8 18. Nh3 Nc4 19. Bc1 b4 20. Na4 Nd5 21. Qe2 Qc6 22. b3 Ncb6 23. Nxb6 Qxb6

White is going to be very hard pressed now to defend both his c- and d-pawns.

24. Bb2 Rac8 25. g3 Rc7 26. Nf2 Qc6 27. Kg1










27... Bxf4!

much stronger than 27... Qxc2 28. Qxa6!?

28. gxf4? Nxf4

White's Queen has no good square that does not allow tactics involving e3 and Qg2#.

29. Qd1 e3 30. d5 Qg6+

White loses the house after 31.Ng4 e2! etc.

0-1
