Jul-20-05  TylerD: In these canadian open games Sjirov finally seems to have found his way back to his brave, glorious play! Sharp, entertaining stuff!
Jul-21-05  Dres1: yea boiiii!
Jul-22-05  Montreal1666: <The spectators also witnessed a titanic Super GM tilt, as Shirov defeated Bologan in a wild game in the sixth round. The game featured an early queen sacrifice by Bologan which could not be accepted, and many interesting material imbalances were seen throughout. Shirov had more pieces to work with, and it seemed that he should be easily winning, but Bologan always created chances for himself, and the balance shifted from move to move. In the end, Bologan's pawns weren't able to create enough threats of queening, and Shirov's extra pieces took over.> from:

Jul-22-05  Montreal1666: On move 32 instead of going for the draw Bologan played on with a4 and he ended up losing!!. I don't know if there is a win for white even with the best play.
