Milicevic - Davies, BC Closed 2001

Replay Game Dragoljub Milicevic - Alex Davies, BC Closed 2001

Dragoljub Milicevic - Alex Davies [A41]

BC Closed/Vancouver (4.5) 2001

1. Nf3 d6 2. d4 Bg4 3. e4 Nf6 4. h3 Bh5 5. Bd3 e6 6. Qe2 Be7 7. c4 c6 8. O-O O-O 9. Bf4 Nbd7 10. e5 Ne8

11. g4 This game illustrates very well the winner's style: Dragoljub Milicevic likes to push pawns that protect his own king. 11... Bg6 12. Bxg6 hxg6 13. Nc3 d5

14. c5! Not only does White grab more space and limits all of Black's pieces, he also makes it more difficult for his opponent to open up the center 14... a5 15. a3 a4 16. Qc2 Qa5 17. Bg5 Qd8? 17... Bxg5 18. Nxg5 18. Bxe7 Qxe7 19. Nxa4 A good chessplayer should be greedy! 19... f6 20. Nb6 Nxb6 21. cxb6 Qd8 22. Qxg6 Qxb6

23. g5! A typical scenario in Milicevic's White games: to obtain counterplay Black sacrifices some material. What now transpires is that Black's king is in fact in more danger then his White colleague 23... Qxb2 23... Qb3!? 24. Kg2 24. gxf6 Nxf6 25. Rab1 it is all over now 25... Qc2

26. Qxc2 1-0 [Roman Jiganchine]
