Evan Timothy Capel - Nicholas Chan
Malaysian Masters 2009 3rdQuarterfinals (Game 2)

1. d4 Nf6 2.Nf3 e6 3. Bg5 c5 4.c3 h6 5. Bxf6 Qxf6 6. Nbd2 cxd4 7. cxd4 Nc6 8. e3 Qd8 9 Bd3 Be7 10. 0-0 0-0 11. a3 d6 12. b4 Bd7 13. Rc1 Qb6 a6 14. Qb3 a6

I do not know what to make of this ..a6-a5.

15. d5 Ne5 16. Nxe5 dxe5 17. Nf3 axb4 18. axb4 Ba4 19. Qc3 Qxd5 20. Bc4

Looks like losing a pawn

20... Qd6

Black has the advantage with the two bishops and possibly winning a pawn after 21. Nxe5 Qxb4 22. Qxb4 Bxb4 and now 23. Rb1 Bd6 attacking the knight on e5.

White also have a problem with his pieces, especially the queen in this position can be easily harrassed by the bishops and rooks

21. Qxe5 Qxe5 22.Nxe5 Bb4 23. Nd3 Bd6 24. Rb1 Rfc8 25. Bb5 Bc2 26. Rb2 Ba3

As predicted, the white pieces are harrassed all over the place.

27. Ra2 Bb3

Black is winning

Black wins and leads two to nothing
