Bh4 {Now Alan is faced with an unenviable choice. Lose a pawn to the tactic played in the game, or allow Dave to double the pawns in front of his king. Looking back, maybe Alan should have played 11...Rd8 or 11...Be6 allowing 12.Bxf6.} 11...Be7 12.Bxf6 Bxf6 13.Nxd5 $1 {13..Qxd5 loses the queen to 14.Bxh7+.} 13...Bg5 14.Nec3 Be6 15.Qh5 h6 16.Rad1 Bxd5 17.Nxd5 { Again the knight is taboo.} 17...Qxa2 $2 {This looks very dodgy. Alan regains his pawn but allows Dave to congregate his forces around the black king - exactly the type of position he likes.} 18.h4 Bd8 19.Qf3 Qa4 20.g3 Re8 {Black had to play 20...Ne7 to give the queen an escape square.} 21. Ra1 {Now it's trapped! Alan tries to get some compensation, but he's fighting a losing battle.} 21...e4 22.Qf4 Qxa1 23.Rxa1 exd3 24.cxd3 Ne5 25.Qa4 Re6 26.d4 Nc6 27.b4 a5 28.Qb5 Ra7 29.Qc5 b6 30.Qb5 axb4 31.Rxa7 Nxa7 32.Qd7 {Dave's queen and knight are working together much better than Alan's uncoordinated pieces.} 32...Nc6 33.Nxb4 ( 33.Nf4 Rf6 34.d5 {was even quicker.} ) 33...Nxb4 34.Qxd8+ Kh7 35.d5 Rf6 36.d6 {Alan has no way to stop the pawn (except by sacrificing a piece) and the rest is easy.} 36...Nc6 37.Qc7 Ne5 38.f4 Ng4 39.d7 Re6 40.d8=Q Rxe3 41.Qc2+ g6 42.Qb2 Re1+ 43.Kg2 Ne3+ 44.Kf3 {A very good attacking game by Dave.} 1-0
