Mar-21-05  THE pawn: It's mostly show-off or a touch of originality, bishop instead of queen...doing the same job

  offramp: Perhaps Shirov still had the black queen in his hand.
Mar-25-05  Flyboy216: <offramp> Presumably you're joking, since (1) there's usually an extra queen lying around, and (2) this was played on a computer :)

  WannaBe: <Flyboy216><offramp>Not only was it on a computer, it was blindfold. There were no pieces that the players can see.

The e1=B+ was going to be lost immediately anyway.

Nov-13-05  SuicidalKing: If I was Shirov I'd cut back on blindfold chess.
