<A. Hauchard-A. Shirov, World Junior Championship, Santiago, 1990

Play went 16...Qc7 17 b4 Nd8 18 Nd3 Ne6 19 Be2 Bxe4 20 fxe4 Nxe4 21 Qc2 N4xc5 22 Nxc5 Nxc5 23 bxc5 e4 24 O-O Rad8 25 Rad1 Qxc5 26 Kh1 d3 27 Bxd3 exd3 28 Qc3. Instead, 28 Rxd3 would lose outright to 28...Qf5.

Shirov’s note at move 16 reads: ‘It is surprising that, when making this move, I had already seen the possibility of a queen sacrifice on move 28.’> http://www.chesshistory.com/winter/...

Sep-19-07  posoo: What about Qb3 on 14? It seems to ask a couple questions black must answer with 14 Na5, which seems to decentralize black's attack.
Mar-30-08  dtsherer: Hauchard could have beat off the attack with 25...Rfdi!! Then Rxd3
Sep-16-08  zatara: <Shirov’s note at move 16 reads: ‘It is surprising that, when making this move, I had already seen the possibility of a queen sacrifice on move 28.’>where is exactly the queen sac??
Sep-17-08  Jim Bartle: If Hauchard had played 28. Rxd3, Shirov would have won by "sacrificing" the queen with 28...Qf5.
