Black played the first big mistake by taking the white pawn at c4, 27…bxc4? allowing white’s rook to take the pawn with a gain in tempo by attacking the black queen at c8, 28.Rbxc4!
Second mistake made by black by taking the white pawn at d6, 31…Bxd6?allowing the rook at c1 to take the exposed black Queen at c8 with 32.Rxc8+, again with tempo!


If black plays 35…Nf4, then 36.Bh6!? pins the black bishop at f8.

Well played Michael Adams! 1-0 to Baden-Baden OSG.
