Alexander Khalifman vs Evgeny Sveshnikov – 1996 Russian Chess Championship

This is a game between Alexander Khalifman and Evgeny Sveshnikov from the 1996 Russian Chess Championship. Khalifman gambits a pawn out of the Queen’s Gambit Declined versus Sveshnikov’s constructed semi-slav pawn structure (e6, d5, c6). Khalifman has as compensation for the gambited pawn, as is usual, a lead in development. Swift and dynamic play is mandatory and rests with Khalifman to try and demonstate that a devlopmental lead outweighs Sveshnikov’s material gain.
