|Sep-02-14|| ||AylerKupp: <plang>, <Jim Bartle>, <Wyatt Gwyon>, <perfidious> Dont you all know by now that <Conrad93> is a classic troll and is only saying things this to get a rise out of you? And this time he apparently succeeded.|
Remember: Don't feed the trolls.
|Sep-02-14|| ||Petrosianic: What's a Classic Troll, exactly? One who only trolls at 45/2 speed or slower?|
|Sep-02-14|| ||zanzibar: <Petrosianic> 9600baud - if you're odd enough to remember!|
|Oct-19-14|| ||Ke2: <Conrad93> Lolololol this troll account is fantastic|
|Aug-09-15|| ||Raaj Dey: Shirov's 47. ....Bh3!! was just the brillancy...that I became one of his fan. Its a 3400elo move.|
|Aug-22-15|| ||Imran Iskandar: <Whitehat1963> This game is one of my all-time favorites.|
Morozevich vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2009
Although there are some mistakes, both sides played brilliantly, and in my opinion it was chess at its most entertaining as well as mind-boggling.
|Oct-18-15|| ||Alex Schindler: Holy cow! I didn't think i could still be surprised by Shirov's endgames til I came across this one. What incredible grasp of the position!|
|Nov-12-15|| ||paavoh: And this has never been a GOTD! Can you believe it??|
|Dec-13-15|| ||sleepyirv: <paavoh> It needs a good pun! I suggest a reference to Thomas Becket: "Will no one rid me of this troublesome priest?"|
|Jan-07-16|| ||WDenayer: 47. ... Bh3 is a fantastic move. Utterly fantastic.|
|Jan-12-16|| ||scholes: One of the best moves in history. And not even game of the day.|
|Mar-14-16|| ||kevin86: Black gives up his bishop do double the adverse pawns so that he could push the queen side pawns through.|
|Mar-14-16|| ||RTJR: 47...Bh3!!! is the single-greatest move ever played in the history of chess. |
The fact that Shirov found that over the board demonstrates a stunning mastery of in-the-moment analysis.
|Mar-14-16|| ||perfidious: Topalov gets a full on meeting with the late, great Amarillo Slim's <Mr More>, courtesy of the elegant 47....Bh3.|
|Mar-14-16|| ||RTJR: Topalov's claim to fame is being fodder for other player's immortal games.|
Kasparov's Immortal, Karpov's Immortal, and this game from Shirov, all of which find Topalov sitting on the losing end.
Thank you Topalov for helping to create some of greatest games ever played ;-)

|Mar-14-16|| ||Aniara: Love the Thomas Becket reference.|
|Mar-14-16|| ||maxi: Topalov has played many interesting games. He has also played great games.|
|Mar-14-16|| ||newhampshireboy: Love this endgame!|
|Apr-01-16|| ||Conrad93: I will say again, this game is severely overrated.
Obviously three passed pawns beat a bishop, but even with the sacrifice it's easy to see that black has enough play to at least draw.
|Apr-01-16|| ||Conrad93: To the guy who said it's a 3400 level move... not it's not. Any average GM would have calculated and seen this possibility.|
|Apr-01-16|| ||N0B0DY: Even Robert James Fischer could have calculated this with ease.|
|Apr-01-16|| ||Conrad93: <Even Robert James Fischer could have calculated this with ease.>|
Fischer would have definitely.
|Apr-16-16|| ||N0B0DY: Hallelujah!|
|Mar-17-17|| ||Toribio3: Shirov is very creative. Two isolated passed pawns with the strong support of a fighting King, the hostile Bishop can not stop them from inevitable promotion!|
