|Feb-04-06|| ||JoeStrummer: He has loss(es) in this famous book? Very modest fellow. I havent read F on B, but figured it was a collection of his Tal-like kills, didn't think there would be any losses included.|
|Feb-04-06|| ||Jim Bartle: There are some losses included in "Fire", mainly in the Botvinnik Anti-Meran variation, but this isn't one of them.|
The comment about being "crushed" by Polgar is in the analysis of a win against Nunn (Bundesliga 1995) which followed the same line through move 9.
But yes, Shirov is modest and particularly generous in his book, giving credit for many of his innovations to other players, such as Yusupov and Shabalov.
|May-24-06|| ||michiganling: The one thing I love most about this game is that when I play it through my copy of Crafty, it essentially reads the entire game as "book" until the final move, where it spits out a mating variation! Now THAT is an influential game. Just beautiful chess by the greatest woman chess player of all time.|
|Feb-11-08|| ||piroflip: the "monkey's bum" variation?|
|Aug-30-09|| ||Bobsterman3000: This opening by Shirov seems a little foolish since Judit is known for her hyper-agressive attacking play. He invited the big attack with his turtle slow development...|
|Aug-30-09|| ||chillowack: I agree, Bobsterman3000: Shirov neglected his development, left his king in the center...it's like he wanted to be crushed.|
|Aug-30-09|| ||ILikeFruits: by a woman...
|Jul-28-10|| ||tentsewang: Now this is what I call a true art of chess unlike today's tedious games by world class elite players.|
|Aug-04-10|| ||AngeLa: wow... this is really an Art to Chess... as a whole.. ^^v nice game sister judith ^^v|
|Dec-01-10|| ||sevenseaman: Utterly resourceless is rendered our Shirov.|
|Dec-02-10|| ||HeMateMe: They're about the same age, maybe 20 years old when this was played? What a sharp game.|

|Jan-25-13|| ||smalldreams: A standard "Robatsch" fianchetto followed by FIVE pointless pawn moves as white builds an intimidating center. My kid could probably look at the board after move 7 and tell you there's something wrong with that. Judit Polgar plays this game brilliantly and deserves credit for it surely, but let's not overlook what a joke black's defense actually was after the first two moves.|
|Mar-31-13|| ||Hot Logic: <Whitehat1963>
After 17...N8f6?? 18.Rd1! and it is a fiasco for Black. Black's Knight is skewered behind the Queen by White's Rook. Plus Black either gets mated or loses heinous amounts of material.
|Oct-04-13|| ||rccomputacion: me encanta judit polgar, la sigo desde que empezo siendo muy chica... pero por aquellos aŅos no sospechaba que llegaria tan lejos.|
|Aug-15-14|| ||posoo: now dis - DIS - is a fine game in da attacking style. Throw da horsos into da fire and see what happens! BRAVA JUDITA POLGARINA.|
|Jul-14-18|| ||devere: 14...Ke7?? was a death wish, and Polgar swiftly obliged. After 14...h6 Black stands OK.|
|Jul-14-18|| ||The Kings Domain: Shirov caught in a pin. Nice maneuvering by Polgar.|
|Jul-14-18|| ||Cheapo by the Dozen: What <devere> said. The engine has the game as a draw at that point.|
|Jul-14-18|| ||Amarande: I'm still trying to figure out what happens after 18 ... Qe6 (as opposed to Qb7 which obviously loses the queen)?|
|Jul-14-18|| ||Marmot PFL: <They're about the same age, maybe 20 years old when this was played? >|
Shirov is years older,people seem to forget what a prodigy Polgar was.
|Jul-14-18|| ||Marmot PFL: <I'm still trying to figure out what happens after 18 ... Qe6 (as opposed to Qb7 which obviously loses the queen)?>|
18...Qe6 19 Nc5 Qc8 20 Qd5, too many threats
|Jul-14-18|| ||Breunor: I'll take everyone's word for t that this is a brilliant game, I don't understand most of the moves! Tactics are way too deep!|
|Jul-14-18|| ||cormier: Analysis by Houdini 4: d 22 dpa done
