BC Closed/Vancouver (4.2) 2001

White manages to refute Black's dubious strategy of pushing the 'a' and 'h' pawns and leaving the king in the center 17. b4 axb4 18. axb4 Rxa1 Black might have tried to not surrender the 'a' file, but then White is breaking through in thecenter! 18... Bb7 19. Rxa8 Qxa8 20. c5 bxc5 21. dxc5 d5 22. exd5 cxd5 23. Nf4 is also very good for White 19. Rxa1 Ba6 20. Ba4 b5 20... Bb7 21. d5 21. cxb5 cxb5 22. Bb3 Bb7 23. Qd3 A joke that Black has more pawn islands than he has pawns seems to be quite appropriate here! 23... Qd7 24. Ra7

24... Qc6 24... Bc8 25. Nd5 would not have changed the outcome 25. d5 White wins a piece after 25. d5 Qb6+ 26. Qd4 1-0 [Roman Jiganchine]
