Indeed.

Aug-11-13  Doniez: Great move! The Shak demolished the Shok
Aug-11-13  Everett: What makes this tactic unusual is the original pin-break, the g6 fork square, the pinned h7 pawn, the rook skewers behind the scenes, and finally the restriction of the bishop.

Because of the number of tactics in this one position, it is worthy of study for the meek like me.

It is Chernev's Winning Chess in a single diagram!

Aug-12-13  csmath: I, on the other hand enjoyed this fine knight manouvre

13. Nxd2, 13. Ne4, 14. Nc5, 16. e4

Can you believe how this white knight dominates black dragon just because black player temporarily blocked it with 12. ... Nc6?

You can recognize world class player that was able to evaluate how to block both black bishops and even eventually trap one of them as an additional insult.

Shark is extremely dangerous in any type of tactical game. Better than Nakamura.
