Jeremy Menadue v Martin Clancy
British Championship 2014, Rd.4
White is familiar with this perfectly playable system. When one player knows the ins and outs of a structure, and the other doesn't, carnage can result.
10...h5 11.Bg5 Qd7 12.Qd2 Nh7 13.Bh6 h4 14.Bxg7 Kxg7 15.Nh1 Qe7 (Ghaem Maghami - Kozul 2008) looks fine for black. But note that the h-pawn push and odd queen dance would be hard for a sub-GM to find: familiarity with an unusual line is more important than strict theoretical advantage.
Absolutely standard KID plan: black's f-pawn is blocked and he has gaping holes around his king.
Surely 13...e4 is better. But white can occupy d4 (Nc3-b5-d4)
Perhaps black started to panic. This looks like one of my thrashing about moves. 14...Nf6 and black is still alive.
Black needs this bishop
Black was probably preparing his resignation speech by now.
