The white fork lock looks very economical. Black can't develop the pieces on 2 and 8 with 13-19? due to the characteristic combination 26.27-21 16x27 27.33-28 W+ At this moment black could opt for 14-19 (to prepare the exchange 17-21 26x28 23x21) 26.33-29 23x34 27.40x29 19-23 28.29-24 3-9 29.45-40 9-14 30.40-35 23-28 31.38-33 28x39 32.43x34 13-19 33.24x13 18x9 34.27x18 12x23 etc. But Cesnokova decides to stick to her strategy.

3-9 26.33-29 23x34 27.40x29 14-19 28.29-24 19x30 29.25x34 13-19 30.50-44 8-13 31.44-39 2-8?

This is probably the source of the later problems for black. After this move the development of the pieces on 8 an 13 becomes very difficult due to simple combinations.

32.38-33 9-14 33.42-38 15-20 34.45-40 19-23?

Only with 19-24 35.40-35 13-19 36.34-30 8-13 black could defend her position.

35.40-35!

13-19?

This is losing, but the alternative 23-28 36.34-30! 20-25 37.30-24 17-21 38.26x17 12x32 39.38x27 8-12 40.24-20 was hopeless too.

36.34-29?

White misses the winning combination 36.26-21! 17x26 37.37-32 26x46 38.34-30 46x28 39.30-25 22x31 40.33x15.

23x34 37.39x30 8-13! 38.30-24(?)

Here 38.33-29! was much better: 16-21 (not 20-25? 39.29-23! W+) 39.27x16 20-25 and the combination 40.29-24 25x34 41.26-21 19x30* 42.35x24 17x26 43.43-39 34x32 44.37x10 26x46 45.10-4 leads to a draw.

20x29 39.33x24 19x30 40.35x24 13-19! 41.24x13 18x9 42.27x18 12x23

Suddenly white is in danger due to her weak right wing.

43.38-33 14-19 44.43-39 19-24 45.39-34(?) 7-12 46.31-27?

This is already losing. A draw was still possible with the illogical move 46.48-42! 9-14 47.31-27 23-28 48.33x22 17x28 49.36-31 12-18 50.41-36 etc.

23-28! 47.33x22 17x28 48.48-42 28-33 49.37-31 24-30 50.34x25 33-39 51.41-37 39-44 52.37-32 44-50 53.25-20 50-39 54.42-38 39-25 55.20-15 9-14 56.32-28 25-30 57.38-33 12-17
