The Dutch Defence
1.d4 f5 2.Nf3 Nf6 3.g3 g6 4.Bg2 Bg7 5.O-O O-O 6.c4 d6 7.Nc3 Qe8 8.b3 e5 9.dxe5 dxe5 10.e4 Nc6 11.Nd5 Nxd5 12.cxd5 fxe4 13.Ng5 Nd4 14.Ba3 e3 15.fxe3 Rxf1+ 16.Qxf1

It may seem strange but that’s the only novelty here. 16.Bxf1 appeared in the only game played by email. 


17.d6!! Nxe3
After 17...Nxa3? 18.Bd5+ Kh8 19.Nf7+ Kg8 20.dxc7 White win.
18.Qe2! e4?
If 18...Nxg2, then 19.dxc7! White will gain the advantage; but still Black had to give a try to this variant with a further hope to save 19...Bh6.
19.Rc1 Bd4 20.Bb2! Qe5
Or 20...Bg4 21.Qd2 Bxb2 22.Qxb2 cxd6 23.Qd4, White win an extra piece, 23...Nxg2 24.Qd5+ Kh8 is completely bad because of 25.Rc7 Bd7 26.Nf7+.
21.Bxd4 Qxd4 22.Qf2! Bf5 23.dxc7 Rc8

24.g4! Nc2 25.Qxd4 Nxd4 26.Rd1
Surely not 26.gxf5 Ne2+.

26...e3 27.Rxd4 Rxc7 28.Bd5+ 1-0

As a result Kasimdzhanov gathered 7.5/9, while Grandmaster Pavel Kotsur won over Nikita Xoroshev and finished the tournament with 7 points as well as Filippov’s offender Begali Saidov. Filippov in the meantime picked 6.5 points and took the fourth place.
