|Nov-23-11|| ||Layson: It has been reported from Susan Polgar (from e3e5.com, but I can't read russian) that Shirov has transferred chess federation and has returned to his homeland, Latvia, where he now again resides.|
|Nov-23-11|| ||polarmis: He's been living in Latvia for years, it seems, but yes, he's switching on 1 January. I put up a quick story about it when it was first revealed a month ago: http://whychess.org/node/2609|
|Nov-23-11|| ||HeMateMe: Could Spain have run out of money to sponsor/stipend such talented players, so he is cutting some expenses by moving back to his homeland? Just guessing.|

|Jan-09-12|| ||timhortons: shirov is playing in keres memorial.|
|Jan-21-12|| ||ketchuplover: He'll be in Toronto on 2-27-12 giving a lecture & exhibition|
|Jan-26-12|| ||SuperPatzer77: He divorced twice from first wife Veronica Alvarez from Argentina and second wife Olga Dolgova from Russia. He is now married to his third wife - Lithuanian GM Victoria Cmilyte. Now he represents Latvia. Wow - he married and divorced. I don't know if he's a womanizer.|
|Jan-27-12|| ||Shams: <SuperPatzer77> Shirov and Victoria Cmilyte split up years ago. She is now with Peter Heine Nielsen. As for Shirov, as of two years ago he was dating this woman:|
|Jan-30-12|| ||waustad: He is not listed as Spanish at Gibraltar. FIDE again lists him as Latvian.|
|Feb-07-12|| ||Calar: Games from Lublin tournament are uploaded:
3rd Lublin GM (2011)
|Feb-29-12|| ||Eggman: Super GM Shirov gave a simultaneous exhibition at the Annex Chess Club in Toronto this past Monday night, alternating with the White and Black pieces, and ceded but a single draw in 27 games! Most impressive.|
|Mar-07-12|| ||Penguincw: A rare event: A person playing black and giving a simul.|
|Mar-07-12|| ||frogbert: not as rare as one might think; i've seen multiple ims and gms not being particularly strict about getting white in every game as long as the simul isn't extremely "serious". gm carlsen has offered simul opponents to play white for instance.|
|Mar-07-12|| ||Penguincw: Let's just say, they have an option, but most prefer the first move.|
|Mar-08-12|| ||Eggman: From Penguicw's link above: << ... Alexei Shirov is willing (a) to take the black side of as many boards as the participants want; and (b) to do a four-hour lecture with his opponents on their games after the event is over.>>|
(b) makes me want to move to Ottawa! In the Toronto simul, which started just before 8pm, there of course wasn't time for such analysis. Fantastic stuff.
|Mar-10-12|| ||Penguincw: Shirov shows how you beat the Berlin.
|May-28-12|| ||ConLaMismaMano: Shirov participating at the "Magistral Ciudad de Buenos Aires" in Argentina. First round already played, he beat GM Flores with the black pieces.|

|Jul-04-12|| ||LoveThatJoker: Happy 40th Birthday, GM Shirov!!
|Jul-04-12|| ||talisman: Happy birthday Alexei! born on the 4th of July. Born free!|
|Jan-22-13|| ||waustad: On the broadcast and on chessbomb, they had Shirov losing in the first round of Gibtel. Now some are saying on chessbomb that the nice game by black there was really Bird-Navara and Shirov won his game. On the results page Shirov won. http://www.gibraltarchesscongress.c...|
|Apr-25-13|| ||Just Another Master: The only man to crush his WC Candidates opponent and never play for the title...Despicable....A Shirov-Kaspy match might have been one of, if the most exciting ever, sure couldn't have been more boring than Kaspy vs the man Shirov demolished.|
|Apr-25-13|| ||perfidious: <SuperPatzer77: ....Wow - (Shirov) married and divorced (thrice). I don't know if he's a womanizer.>|
Nice try at a strawman, but I hate ta break it ta ya: being thrice married and divorced does not necessarily imply being a womaniser.
How much more ill-judged a comment can you make without knowing someone, and in any case, why do you consider it your business?
|Apr-25-13|| ||perfidious: <JAM> In such a match, Shirov might even have managed a feat which he was signally unable to accomplish vs Kasparov in their tournament encounters: win a game outright.|
|Apr-25-13|| ||Just Another Master: If they played a match who knows...thats why they play the games|
