1. Nf3 Nc6 2. g3 d6 3. Bg2 e5

Kings Indian Attack after 3... e5.

Kings Indian Attack after 3… e5.

Black’s move order is not in my ECO database so I can’t figure out the ECO code for this game. At this point White is committed to playing the Kings Indian Attack.

4. d3 h6 5. O-O Be7 6. e4 Be6 7. Nbd2 Nf6 8. b3 Nh5?

I gave Black’s last move a question mark for two reasons. First, knights don’t belong on the edge of the board unless they are moving to a better square. Second, now White can play 9. Nxe5 winning a pawn after 9… Nxe5 or 9… dxe5 10. Qxh5. However, the Knight sacrifice on move ten was a blunder because of the Queen on d7. The Queen got trapped on h5 and I lost the exchange!

9. Bb2 Qd7 10. Nxe5? Nxe5 11. Qxh5?? Bg4!

Kings Indian Attack after 11... Bg4!

The White Queen is now trapped and White will lose the exchange. White is now lost but plays on hoping for a draw.

12. Bxe5 Bxh5 13. Bxg7 Rh7 14. Bd4 f6 15. f4 c6

Kings Indian Attack after 15... c6.

Kings Indian Attack after 15… c6.

White is now down a Queen for a Knight and 2 pawns. White now tries to get an attack going on the Queenside, but it doesn’t pan out. When down this much material White’s best drawing chances are to keep the position as closed as possible. The other option is to go for an all out attack hoping to luck into a checkmate of my opponent.

16. a4 a6 17. Nc4 Qg4 18. Bc3 Bf7 19. Nb6 Rb8 20. e5? dxe5 21. fxe5?? Bc5+ 0-1

Kings Indian Attack after 21... Bc5+ (Final position).

White, who is already down material, and is going to lose the Knight on b6.
