Thursday 15 January 1998
White met his opponent's Dutch Defence in recommended fashion, taking a firm grip on the black squares, kicking the visiting knight out of e4 with f3, then pushing forward in the centre with e4. Meanwhile, however, Black's K-side attack was growing in force, and when the black rooks doubled on the g-file, White was in mortal danger.
After 31...Qh3, White's 32.Rxc7 looked almost desperate, but left Black a tricky choice. He can win the queen with 32...Rg2 33.Rc2 (33.Qe3 Rxh2+! or 33.Qf1 Rg1+ lead to mate) 33...Rxf2 34.Rxf2, but instead took the rook, planning to return to g7 later. He may have missed 33.Bg3! and 34.Bh4! giving White just the time needed for his counterattack.
41.Qd7! was a nice winning move: 41...Rxd7 42.Rg8 is mate.
White: Zurab Azmaiparashvili
Black: Mikhail Krasenkov
