Shabalov,A (2623) - Movsesian,S (2639) [E94]It Bermuda BER (9), 24.01.2004[IM Andrew Martin]

1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 g6 3.Nc3 Bg7 4.e4 d6 5.Nf3 0-0 6.Be2 e5 7.0-0 Na6 8.Be3 Ng4 9.Bg5 Qe8 10.dxe5 dxe5 11.h3 [11.Nd2 attempts the same gnawing pressure except that this time the Bishop has to retreat to h4. It's a moot point whether the Bishop has any influence on the game from there. 11...f6 12.Bh4 h5 13.a3 c6 14.b4 Be6 15.c5 Rd8 16.Qc2 g5 17.Bg3 h4 18.h3[] Nh6 19.Bh2 g4 20.hxg4 Nxg4 Correcty using the Bishop to facilitate counterplay. 21.Nc4 Nxh2 22.Kxh2 Qg6 23.Nd6 Rd7 24.Rad1 Bh6 25.Nf5 (25.Bxa6 bxa6 26.Nf5 Bf4+ 27.Kh1 h3!? would presumably involve Gelfand in unwelcome complications.) 25...Bf4+ 26.Kh1 Rh7 27.Qd3 Kh8 28.Qh3 Nc7 29.Rd6 Bg8 30.Rfd1 Ne6 31.Bc4 Ng5 32.Qd3 Bxc4 33.Qxc4 Nf7 34.Rd7 Rg8 35.Qf1 Qg4 36.R1d3 Nh6 37.Rxh7+ Kxh7 38.Rh3 Nxf5 1/2-1/2 Gelfand,B-Movsesian,S/Bermuda BER 2004]
11...f6 12.Bd2! Why not keep centralized - much more elastic ? Shabalov demonstrates a very positive reason why the Bishop goes here.
12...Nh6 13.c5! A very interesting,dynamic pawn advance. I don't believe 13...Rb8 so Black has to take.
13...Nxc5 14.Qc1 Nf7 15.Nd5 Ne6 The only move.
16.Bb4 c6 [16...c5 17.Bxc5 Nxc5 18.Qxc5! (18.Nc7 Qc6 19.Nxa8 Bh6! 20.Qc2 Bd7© ) 18...Be6 19.Bc4 is just deeply unpleasant for Black. White gets his Rooks to the open files much more quickly and has a big initiative. Movsesian makes the only practical decision: to sacrifice an exchange.]
17.Bxf8 Qxf8 18.Ne3 Nd6 It will be a very long time before the White Rooks get going.
19.Qc2 f5 [19...Nf4 is also possible, a very handy square indeed.]
20.exf5N [Shabalov played this all before,so doubtless Movsesian had an improvement ready on the following game. Let us try to determine what that might have b
