Slav Defence
1.d4 d5 2.c4 c6 3.Nf3 Nf6 4.e3 Bg4 5.Nc3 e6 6.h3 Bh5 7.Qb3 Qc7 8.Nh4 Nbd7 9.Bd2 Nb6 10.cxd5 exd5 11.Rc1 Bg6 12.Nxg6 hxg6 13.Bd3 Be7 14.O-O Kf8?!
A strange desicion of avoiding castling provoked all further problems for Black. 
15.a4 a5 16.e4 dxe4 17.Nxe4 Rh5 18.Rfe1 Nxe4 19.Bxe4 Bd6 20.Qf3!

20...Kg8 is followed by 21.Bxc6! with a decisive advantage for White. 
21.Bxg6 Rh8?
In the case of moving rook on b5 or f5 Black has objectively worse position. For example, 20...Rd5 21.Bf5 Kf8 22.Qxd5 cxd5 23.Rxc7 Bxc7 24.Re7. But after 
22.Bg5! 1-0
everything ends quickly. Black resigned.
