Bd3 Nc6 5. Ne2 Qf6 6. Nbc3 Bb4 (6... Bd6 { appears to be more natural as black doesn't really want to exchange its good bishop.}) 7. O-O Nge7 8. Nb5 {Forcing off blacks bishop} Bd6 9. Nxd6+ Qxd6 10. Bf4 Qd8 {Forcing black to waste more queen moves} 11. Re1 O-O 12. Bg5 f6 13. Bd2 Bf5 14. Nf4 {Threatening that weak e6 square.} Qd7 15. Bxf5 Qxf5 (15... Nxf5 {Is better.}) 16. Ne6 Rfc8 17. c3 Ng6 18. Bh6 $1 {Not a typical move which gained a couple of strange looks but is actually sound. White is threatening g4 to win the Queen and the g7 pawn.} ({I looked at} 18. g4 $1 Qd3 19. Re3 ({Fritz shows the way after} 19. Nxg7 $1 {If black takes} Kxg7 {then} 20. Bh6+ {and he can kiss the Monarch goodbye.}) 19... Qb5 {but couldnt see how I got a good enough attack or advantage....}) 18... Nh4 {A forced move, now whites real plan. The Bishop move was not to win the Queen but move the Knight! When the Knight was on g6, it was protecting the vital f4 square, but now it is not!} ({If} 18... gxh6 {then} 19. g4 {still wins the Queen!}) 19. Bf4 {winning the c pawn and also eyeing up the weak d pawn too.} Re8 20. Nxc7 Rxe1+ 21. Qxe1 Qg4 22. Bg3 Rd8 23. Nxd5 1-0
