Men's Superfinal 2012, Round 6

Caro-Kann defence
Dmitry Andreikin's commentary
1.e4 c6
I was surprised by my opponent's opening choice. I was expecting sicilian defence, Najdorf variant. Sanan plays Caro-Kann successfully for white, lately he started to play it for black as well. 
2.d4 d5 3.Nd2 I played this variant because Sanan doesn't play so neither for white, nor for black. 
3...dxe4 4.Nxe4 Nd7 5.Bc4 Ngf6 6.Ng5 e6 7.Qe2 Nb6 8.Bd3 h6 Taking on d4 is wrong, because of N1f3 and Ne5.
9.N5f3 c5 10.dxc5 I didn't remember the best move for white here: either 10.dxc5, or 10.с3. I just took a pawn and then started to think what should I answer on, for instance, 10...Nd7. For example, 10...Nbd7 11.b4 a5 12.c3 axb4 13.cxb4 b6.
But he played 10...Bxc5, after which white has a very comfortable position. An easy play was ahead. 
11.Ne5 0-0 12.Ngf3

12...a6 I think this is the decisive mistake. Honestly, I didn't get this move at all. Maybe Sanan was looking forward to respond 13...Na4 on 13.Bd2 and then, for example, Qb6.
13.g4 After 13.0-0 white is of course standing comfortable. But I decided that I had to punish my opponent for playing 12..a6.
Here Sanan turned on his thinking mode. I think it's already hard for black to defend here. I already didn't see any appropriate move for him. 
13...Nbd5 I was calculating 13...Nfd7 14.g5 f6 with the idea to sacrifice the exchange after 15.Ng6. But I could play 15.Qe4 f5 16.Qh4.
This idea is even more powerful after 13...Nfd5 14.g5 f6 15.Qe4. Perhaps, white wins soon.

14.Rg1 I liked this move. If playing 14.g5 black answers 14...hxg5 15.Bxg5 and you get the position from the game, but I would already the bishop on g5. 15...Bb4+ 16.Kf1 Be7. I think black still has a chance to hold: For example 17.Rg1 Nh5 с идеей 18.Qe4 f5. That's why I decided not to hurry with playing g5.
14...Bb4+ Sanan was already in a time trouble.
15.Kf1 Be7 16.g5 hxg5 17.Nxg5 Here all white pieces are attacking and it's clear that black has no chance to defend. 
17...Bd6 Here I thought that interesting was 17...Qc7. As in the game 18.Nh7 was winning the exchange. There also was the idea of moving the rook to h3 through g3.

18.Nh7 Qc7 Losing was18...Nxh7 19.Bxh7+ Kxh7 20.Qh5+ Kg8 21.Rxg7+ Kxg7 22.Bh6+ Kg8 23.Qg4+
19.Bh6 The last move which had to be found. First I was seduced to play: 19.Nxf6+ Nxf6 20.Bh6 Ne8 21.Bxg7 Nxg7 22.Rxg7+ Kxg7 23.Qg4+. But it doesn't lead to win: 23...Kf6 24.Qh4+ Kxe5. Here I was looking for checkmate. 25.c4 would be answered by a strong 25...Qa5! White can have only a perpetual check. Losing was 26.f4+?? Kd4 27.Qf2+ Kxd3.
19...Ne8 19...g6 20.Nxf6+ Nxf6 21.Nxg6 fxg6 22.Rxg6+ Kf7 23.Rg7+.

20.Bxg7 Nxg7 21.Rxg7+ Kxg7 22.Qg4+ Kh8 23.Nf6 1-0

Thus, two A-s are leading again: Andreikin and Alekseev. Jakovenko is half a point behind them. He is chased by five players including Vitiugov who outplayed Daniil Dubov.
