Against Slav defence: Shabalov Attack
Compiled by regent at hk

Set up d5,c6,e6,Nf6 is usually played by solid positional players. Let us add some fire by means of Shabalov-Shirov attack ;)

The main ideas:
1) Black ignores Whites threat: 7..0-0
White should advance 8.g5 and orginize a King side shtorm. Set-up: developing Bd2, Ng5 and meet h6 with h4, central breal e4, after f5 always open g-file by means of gf. King may either stay in the center or long castle.
