Here is a game from the 2008-2009 German Schachbundesliga, IM Lauber - GM Naumann with full annotations and commentary:





This game was a very entertaining game to view with two different approaches out of the opening. Black was interested in trying to play for an extra pawn if possible and white gladly allowed this to take a lead in development which lead to a strong initiative against the black King which persisted throughout the whole game. In the end the greedy opening play of black may have been the primary cause of defeat.
