|Dec-23-03|| ||Bears092: Samisch vs Capablanca, 1929
I think that's worse
|Jan-29-04|| ||popski: <Bears092> C'mon ... :/ |
|Jan-29-04|| ||tamar: Shirazi in a better light.
K Shirazi vs Alburt, 1981
|Mar-21-04|| ||Eatman: I am reasonably sure that Shirazi's opponent is Californian IM Jack Peters. |
|May-10-04|| ||poktirity: H Peters other game is also quite nice =) |
|May-23-04|| ||zugzwangninja: This is the shortest decisive game in US Championship history. I just looked it up when GM Larry Christiansen mentioned it online. This just goes to show that even very strong players sometimes make simple oversights. |
|Oct-07-04|| ||Morty: This is known as the Sicilian Wing Gambit. I have read that Paul Keres tried some of his ideas related to this gambit a few times in his youth. |
|Oct-07-04|| ||tpstar: <Morty> You might enjoy this interesting game with analysis by several kibitzers = Bronstein vs Deep Blue, 1996 |
|Oct-07-04|| ||Morty: Thank you for the reference. That was quite the strange game. |
|Jan-31-05|| ||Jaymthegenius: I am confidant that Shirazi would easily defeat Greco, Philidor, or Morphy, so dont say "he sucks" just in this one game he blundered, |
|Feb-02-05|| ||Karpova: <jaym>
you seem to be some kind of a comedian!
at least your statements suggest this point of view.
|Nov-26-05|| ||Chopin: <Jaymthegenius>: <I am confidant that Shirazi would easily defeat Greco, Philidor, or Morphy>
Will most probably beat Greco, maybe Philidor, I'm very confident that he'll never beat Morphy. Morphy's rating was calculated to be around 2700.|
|Jan-21-06|| ||An Englishman: Good Morning: I actually watched this game as it was played, and Black was IM Jack Peters, as <Eatman> suggests. As I recall, Peters did not reply right away, sitting very still and staring at the position. He might have been shocked. I stood next to WNM Inna Izrailov and whispered, "Shirazi blundered away a Rook." She whispered back, "No way--oh, my God."|
|Mar-22-06|| ||mcgee: This was not Berkeley 1986 either, it was the US Champ 1984.|
|May-06-06|| ||Paintbucket: Wonderful example of the wing gambit. (Kidding)|
|Apr-17-08|| ||wrap99: I think Shirazi had a fairly bad result at the 1984 championship.|
I was there, too. I remember it was played in the student union or something and there were musicians outside who had to be quieted. So in Shirazi's defense, this event was not played under anything like ideal conditions.
|Apr-13-09|| ||Dredge Rivers: What do you expect? The Sicilian Wing Gambit is garbage!|
|Apr-13-09|| ||Riverbeast: This game was played when Shirazi was on serious 'tilt'...Of the 17 games he played in the US Championship, he only drew one and lost the rest|
|Apr-13-09|| ||Dredge Rivers: Why was Shirazi in the US championship? Wasn't he an Iranian?|
|Apr-13-09|| ||AnalyzeThis: Whatever he was, Jackie Peters didn't mind.|
|Apr-13-09|| ||Riverbeast: <Wasn't he an Iranian?>|
Naturalized American, I'm assuming...He played in several US Championships.
It's a bit unfair to judge him just from his poor performances in the US Championships, because he had some decent results after 1984, including a plus score in the US Championship a few years later.....
But after he went 1-14 in the 1992 US Championships, a rather unkind joke was going around the Manhattan Chess Club..."Shirazi wanted to prove that his 1984 performance wasn't a fluke!"
|May-07-09|| ||Marmot PFL: This game as well as any demonstrates the power of the Sicilian. White seems psychologically beaten from the start.|
<AnalyzeThis> Strong master from Boston. Vas Rajlich studied chess with him while learning about computers at MIT.
|Dec-17-11|| ||King Death: I witnessed this fiasco, and it was played in 1984, like others have said, not 1986.|
