Ivanchuk defeated in 20 moves

Last evening Anatoly Karpov enriched his busket with two more wins a the rapid chess competition taking palce at Cap d'Agde, France. In Round 7 he defeated Zhao Xue; int he next round he took an upper hand on Ivanchuk as black.


Black can hardly be satisfied with the results of the opening. If any side can gain a quick here, that should be white. For instance, after 13.Qg4! However, Ivanchuk gradually lost the thread of the game.
13.Qf5?! Sort of a break for black, now there's an important tempo for development.
13...Na6 14.0-0 Nc5 15.b3 From this move white started making strange moves on its queen-flank. More logical was 15.Rfe1.
15...h5 16.a3 Qa5 17.Nb1 b5 18.Be2? White still could maintain advantage after 18.b4! Qc7 19.bxc5 bxc4 20.Nd2.
18...Ne6 19.Bxh5 Kf8. The king hid fromt he check on d7. Everything is ready for a simple trap. 

20.c3?? There are GMs and coaches who blame every move by the pawns without any extreme need in it. This game should enter chess textbooks which confirm such philosophy. Correct was 20.Bg4.
20...Ng7 0-1
