Yeoh Li Tian game analysis

This is the 1st game analyze by me. Just for fun ^.^......

Analyze by Fritz 12 & Yatz

[Event "KL Open 2010"]
[Date "2010.04.9"]
[Round "5"]
[White "Yeoh Li Tian"]
[Black "IM Prathamesh, sunil mokal"]
[Result "1/2-1/2"]
[PlyCount "42"]

1. e4 c5 2. c3 Nf6 (Alapin variation 2. c3).

It is named after the Russian master Semyon Alapin (1856-1923). Today, the Alapin is considered one of the most solid and respectable Anti-Sicilians. It has in the past been played by World Champions Viswanathan Anand, Garry Kasparov, Anatoly Karpov, Veselin Topalov and Vladimir Kramnik.
Yeoh Li Tian told me he was very well prepared against his opponent. Guess he must be studying this opening very deeply.

3. e5 Nd5 4. d4 cxd4 5. cxd4 e6 6. Nf3 d6 7. Bc4 Nc6

Preparing to capture the e5 pawn.

8. O-O Be7 9. Qe2 O-O 10. Nc3 dxe5 11. dxe5 Nxc3 12. bxc3 Qa5 (maybe black should consider Qc7)

13. Qe4 (threatening Bd3) g6? (Rd8 should be better)

14. Re1 Rd8 15. Bg5 Bd7?? (15....Qxc3)

16. Qh4! Qc5 (White position is much better now. If 16. ..... Bxg5 than 17. Nxg5!! threatening mate. 17. ... h5 force 18. Nxf7!! Rf8 [18. ... Kxf7 19. Qf6+! Kg8 20. Qxg6+ Kf8 21. Re3!! +-] 19. Ng5+-. White win a pawn with a better position.)

17. Rab1 Rab8 18. Rb5 Qa3 19. Rb3 Qc5 20. Rb5 Qa3 21. Rb3 Qc5 +-* 1/2-1/2

White has a better position. 20. Bf6 win for white. When asked was he winning, he replied "No, the position is quite equal."

Please leave your comment about my analysis no matter if it is good or bad.
