Here is a game from the 2009 Australian Open Chess Championships, FM Sales - IM Xie with full annotations and commentary:





In this game we saw the Slav Defence employed by black. This choice proved o be a solid one in which white was not able to get any edge. Then slowly throughout the game black was able to methodically take control and invade with the pawns and other pieces which caused white to crumble under the pressure. This game was a clear example of the strength and reputation of the Slav defense!
