1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 Nf6 5.Nc3 e5 6.Ndb5 d6 7.Bg5 a6 8.Na3 b5 9.Nd5 Be7 10.Bxf6 Bxf6 11.c4 b4 12.Nc2 a5 13.Qf3 Be6 I have heard recently lots of sceptical opinions about the use of the chess books, and have never agreed to the idea. I am delighted to present you this game. 14.Rd1

14...a4!?N This move is a novelty, but a one that was already suggested in the fresh book "The Easiest Sicilian" by A. Kolev and T. Nedev. "Kolev's idea is to anticipate the enemy's activity and radically disturb his plans."-"The Easiest Sicilian". Previously other moves were met: [14...Bxd5 15.Rxd5 Ne7 16.Rd1 Qb6 17.Be2 0–0 18.0–0 Bg5 19.g3 Rad8 20.Qd3 g6 now after: 21.Kg2 draw was agreed Ѕ–Ѕ Watzka,H (2325)-Horvath,T (2440)/Austria 1993/EXT 1998

'(21.Ne3 was a new move by Kobalia, but unsuccessful- 21...Bxe3 22.Qxe3 Qc7 23.f4 exf4 24.gxf4 f5 and Black eventually won, 0–1 Kobalia,M (2627)-Krasenkow,M (2624)/Dagomys RUS 2008 (45)) ; 14...Be7 15.c5 0–0 16.Bb5 Na7 17.Ba4 is the original fresh idea for White in the line, 1–0 Nepomniachtchi,I (2600)-Andriasian,Z (2532)/Moscow RUS 2008 (45)] 15.Be2 Let me quote the book again: [15.c5?! Qa5!; 15.Nxf6+ gxf6!?
Take care about this line-you will see it in the game, too. (15...Qxf6!?) 16.Be2 b3 17.axb3 Rb8 18.b4 Nxb4 19.Na3 Nc6 20.Nb5 Qa5+ 21.Rd2 Ke7 22.Qd3 Nd4 23.Nxd4 exd4 24.Qxd4 Qc5 with compensation 25.Qxc5 dxc5 26.0–0 Rb4 27.Rc1 Rhb8 28.Rcc2 f5 29.f3 fxe4 30.fxe4 Kf6 31.Kf2

31...Ke5 and Black is doing fine.] 15...b3 16.axb3 Rb8 17.Nxf6+ gxf6 18.b4 Nxb4 19.Na3 Nc6 20.Nb5 Qa5+ 21.Rd2 Ke7 22.Qe3
22...Nd4! 23.Nxd4 exd4 24.Qxd4 Qc5 25.Qxc5 Despite of the fact that chess engines gives huge advantage for White here the position is about equal. Papadopoulos did not spend much time on this game. Draw.
