Philidor Defence Complications

You must beat strong players to become one yourself. Complications trick them. Weak players may keel over simple positions, but you must fight to win against strong players. In this battle between International Masters, Thomas Beerdsen wins as White in a Philidor Defence vs Manuel Bosboom. White finds the winning move in complications.

Beerdsen (2445) - Bosboom (2403), Batavia GM Amsterdam NED, 03.03.2018 begins 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 d6 3.d4 exd4 4.Nxd4 g6 5.Nc3 Bg7 6.g3 Nc6 7.Be3 Nf6 8.h3 0-0 9.Bg2 Re8 10.0-0 Rb8 [10...Bd7=] 11.f4 Bd7 [11...Nxd4 12.Bxd4 b6=] 12.Re1 a6 13.g4 h6 14.Bf2 Na5!? 15.Qd3 b5 16.Bh4 Nc4 17.b3 Nb2 18.Qg3 g5 [18...b4=/+] 19.fxg5 Nh7 20.Qe3 hxg5 21.Bg3 b4 22.Nce2 Nf6 23.Rf1 Qe7 24.e5 dxe5 25.Nf5 Bxf5 26.Rxf5 e4 [26...Rbd8 27.Raf1+/=] 27.Raf1 Rb5 28.Nd4 Nd5 [28...Rc5 29.Rxg5 Rxg5 30.Qxg5+-]
