D11: Slav Defense - Fianchetto Variation


White allows Black to hold the pawn after ...dxc4 in a Fianchetto Semi-Slav. White tries to play aggressively but his game falls apart. He tries a desperate kingside attack and Black defends poorly, allowing at least a draw. However, White tries to win and ends up with an inferior game. In the endgame, Black is much better, but captures a pawn the wrong way, allowing White the opportunity to grab a key file with a rook and possible winning chances. However, White fails to take that opportunity and then, finally, his chances run out and Black is able to reel in the win.
