To Curious Ending Through Dubious Opening: Nakamura Gets Ahead in Gibraltar

Half of the Gibraltar Masters distance is over, and the tournament has finally got the sole leader: the second seed Hikaru Nakamura is the only one having the perfect score. In the 5th round, he won an unusual game against Indian GM Baskaran Adhiban. 

Baskaran ADHIBAN - Hikaru NAKAMURA
Gibraltar Masters 2015, round 5

Queen's Gambit Accepted
1.d4 d5 2.c4 dxc4 3.e4 b5!? Nakamura has already tried this rare line in Dubai last year (in both blitz and rapid world championships), but never in the classical games.
4.a4 c6 5. Nc3 a6!? If 5...b4 then the game transposes to the Slav Defence: 1.d4 d5 2.c4 c6 3.Nc3 dxc4 4.e4 b5 5.a4 b4, but the Black's plans are different. At first glance, the text move looks nonsense as White can just take twice.
6.axb5 cxb5 7.Nxb5 axb5. After 7...Bb7 8.Nc3 Black is simply lost. At the same time, the (necessary) exchange sacrifice also seems to be suitable only for some friendly blitz in a park. However, if it led a GM rated 2630 into a nearly hopeless position (in a classical game!) after just a few moves, maybe the first impression is a bit superficial?
8.Rxa8 Bb7 9. Ra1 e6! A part of the idea. 9...Bxe4 is premature due to 10.f3 Bd5 11.b3.

10.Ne2. The question is what's Black has any real compensation after 10.f3. What can be more logical than protecting the pawn and supporting the pawn center? Let's continue: 10...Nc6 11.Ne2! (better than 11.Be3 Bb4+ 12.Kf2 f5!, and after 13.exf5 Nge7! 14.fxe6 Nf5 Black's compensation becomes more than obvious). If now 11...Nf6 then it's Zakhartsov - Bauer (Metz 2014) where White hasn't been required to work miracles in order to enter a convertion stage soon: 12.Be3 Na5 13.Nc1 Nc6 14.Kf2 Qb6 15.Ne2 e5 16.Qd2 Bb4 17.d5! Qd8 18.Qc2 Na5 19.Nc3 Ba6 20.Bxc4! Nxc4 21.Rxa6 and so on. After the game, Nakamura joined the official live commentator Simon Williams (from now on, we'll refer to his appearance on the air a lot in the annotations - CN) and, answering Simon's question, said he had had something in mind in case of 10.f3, without going into details though. The annotator's best guess is 10...f5!?.
10...Bxe4 11.b3? The only way to justify the previous move is 11.Nc3, which Nakamura was intending to meet with 11...Bb4 (14...Bc6!? - CN) 12.Be2 Nf6 13.0-0 Bxc3 14.bxc3, and 'White is in no danger; if anyone has chances it could be White who's the extra exchange', according to Hikaru.
11...Nc6 12.Nc3? The third inaccuracy in a row is too much for an unbalanced position like this one. White should already take on c4 even though his king sets off for a dangerous journey: 12...Nb4 13.Nc3 Nc2+ 14.Ke2 Nxd4+ 15.Ke3, and Black has many appealing ways to go for an attack (15...Bc5, 15...Nf6, 15...Nh6!?), although the engines see nothing but equality.
12...Bb4 13.Bd2 Bxc3 14.Bxc3 b4 15.d5 (15.Bd2 c3 16.Be3 Nge7 is very sad) 15...bxc3 16.dxc6 Qxd1+ 17.Kxd1 cxb3
.

The dubious opening experiment has fully justified itself: while the white passed pawn can be stopped easily, it's unclear how White should cope with the black ones. However, Adhiban pulls himself together at last and finds the only defence.
18.c7 Kd7. According to Hikaru, 18...Ne7 would have been much better: 19.Bb5+ Kf8 20.Ke2 b2 21.Rad1 g5 22.Bd3 (the reason he refused this line is that after 22.Rd8+? Kg7 23.Bd3 he missed 23...c2! in his calculations) 22...Bb7 'with the clear win after Nd5, Kg7, Rc8', but in fact White can keep drawing chances by 23.Bc2 Nd5 (or 23...Kg7 24.Kd3! Nd5 25.Bb3) 24.Rxd5! exd5 25.Kd3 Kg7 26.Kxc3 Rc8 27.Kxb2 Rxc7 28.Ra1, etc.
19.Ra3! b2 (19...Bd5 20.Bb5+ Kxc7 21.Ba4) 20.c8=Q+ Kxc8 21.Rxc3+ Kd7 22.Bd3 b1=Q+ 23.Bxb1 Bxb1 24.Rb3
.

It's already Black who has big material advantage, but the technical phase isn't easy because White can occupy the 8th rank, locking the black pieces in the corner.
24...Be4 25.Rb8 g5? 'A bad blunder' (Nakamura). Instead, he suggested 25...Bc6!: 26.Ke2 Ke7 27.Rc1 Be8 28.Rc7+ Kf8. He showed the line 29.g4 (trying to stop the knight from settling down on f6) 29...g5 30.h4 h6 31.f4 Ne7. And indeed, the ending after 32.hxg5 hxg5 33.fxg5 Rg8 34.Rc5 Kg7 is hardly holdable. Even if White manages to keep his g5-pawn, Black's passed e-pawn should say its decisive word sooner or later.
26.Ke2 Ke7 27.h4? This is the losing move according to Nakamura, whereas 27.Rc1 is 'close to a draw' as Black cannot untangle without losing material: 27...Kf6 28.Rcc8 Kg7 29.f3 Bf5 30.g4 Bg6 31.Re8. Later in the analysis, Hikaru got some doubts, as he saw 31..h5 32.h3 hxg4 33.hxg4 (33.fxg4 f6!) 33...Rh2+ and 34...Nf6, but then added: 'Still, I'm not so convinced'.
Nakamura, who said 'he played close to perfect chess in the first four rounds', wasn't that happy with the second part of this game, but whilst his 18th move in fact shouldn't be condemned, this time his intuition was correct. After 31...h5 (meanwhile, 30.g4 isn't actually necessary) White has the sudden 32.h4!! with the basic idea of 32...gxh4 33.g5!, while if 32...hxg4 then 33.hxg5 Rxh2+ (33...gxf3+ 34. Kxf3 is same) 34.Ke3 Bh7 34.fxg4. In all the lines, Black is unable to release the grip!

27...gxh4 28.Rxh4 Bc6! 29.Rc4 Be8 30.Rc7+ Kd6 31.Ra7 Ne7 32.Rd8+ Ke5 33.Rb7 Kf6 34.Rdb8 (34.Rbb8 Bb5+!) 34...Ng6.

The rook is finally protected and ready to leave the corner, and 'the rest is pretty easy' - Nakamura. White resigned 21 moves later. 0-1 (Annotated by GM Andrey Deviatkin)

Standinds after 5 rounds: 1. Nakamura - 5 points; 2-6. Topalov, Yu Yangui, Wei Yi, Vasquez, Howell - 4.5 each. The top pairing of the 6th round is Nakamura - Topalov.
