Here is a game from the 2008 Vlissingen Tournament, FM Van Eijk - GM Landa with full annotations and commentary:





In this game we saw white take on a very unconventional style of play especially early in the game with h2-h4-h5, g2-g4, and f2-f4 which proved to give white a dangerous attack against the castled King. Also, the early Rh1-h2 was a nice defensive idea which should be remembered as a useful defensive idea in many positions. But in the end the more experienced player showed the technique necessary to win the game by playing a more balanced game.
