  tamar: Fascinating stuff. White plays 5 Bd3 and 6 Qe2 only to retract those moves with 8 Qe2-d1 and 10 Bd3-f1. Shirov tries to avoid retracting his queen off e7 by developing the dark square bishop to g7, but ends up with his pieces not effectively placed.

  fasting: What fascinate me about Moro, is that he plays some kind of anti-chess and is being really succesfull with it. He often goes against mainstream understanding of developing pieces, plays chigorin against 1.d4, and in this game 5.Bd6 etc.
