May-18-06  Drifter: This game is definitly not Nigel Short (even though the home page says it is) Nigel has never once played d4 in a serious game.

This is not a kings indian (as te top of the page says) it reached a benoni through transposition after the moves 7...c5 8.d5 heres an example of the same opening (and is also one of my favourite games Spassky vs Fischer, 1992

May-18-06  Drifter: p.s My example is not exactly the same opening, but it is a variation of the benoni which is what im trying to demonstrate.
May-18-06  notsodeepthought: <ItzEinStein: It says Shirov everywhere except the Home Page. It's a good job the pun was not based on Short's name.> No problem - that could be fixed. For example, "White made Shirov work of black's defence." Oh, wait, I see what you mean...

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Shirov was always one step ahead during this tactical melee. To me, his attack began on move 12 and never let up. He always seemed to have one more shot to keep up the attack.
May-18-06  SJP: <seethamraju> Simply, 1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 g6 without 3...d5
May-18-06  weary willy: Hmmmm... I'd have gotten away with it too, if it hadn't been for that pesky knight

  offramp: "Gausdal Troll Masters" does not sound like a fun tournament.
May-18-06  gemperojr: king`s Indian is a sound defense!
May-18-06  Runemaster: <offramp: "Gausdal Troll Masters" does not sound like a fun tournament.> There's no entrance fee if you are 3 metres tall with red eyes.
May-18-06  e4Newman: Is ...Bg4 a sound move in the benoni? Certainly not in the KID. Thus we see the game breaking 12.e5!
May-18-06  vizir: wow Hoi has been totally outplayed since the opening, great game by Shirov
May-18-06  geigermuller: very solid and simple, bravo Shirov
May-18-06  dakgootje: <There's no entrance fee if you are 3 metres tall with red eyes.> does red sunglasses also count, as then i would qualify ;-)

  pkendal: <There's no entrance fee if you are 3 metres tall with red eyes.> I don't think there's *ever* an entrance fee if you're 3 metres tall with red eyes!
May-18-06  dakgootje: <I don't think there's *ever* an entrance fee if you're 3 metres tall with red eyes!> well there are places where you cant come in if your 3 metres tall with red eyes...but thats more because the doors nor the rooms arent that high...

  kevin86: Can Kanamits or Klingons get in free?

This game looks like yesterday's. A pseudo-sac is followed by a fork and a chain of events-actually ending in material advantage for the sac-er.

May-18-06  avicell: I'm sorry for my n00bness, but can someone please explain to me what's wrong with 30...Rg7?
Premium Chessgames Member
  kevin86: <avicell> White wins quickly with 31 ♖d1 followed by d7.31...♖d8 is met by the fork at e6.

  TheAlchemist: <Gausdal Troll Masters> I think I know who won the tournament...
May-18-06  itz2000: good game, not spactacular

  OhioChessFan: In replaying the game, dxe5 looks like a blunder. Is that theory?
May-18-06  Andrew Chapman: <26. Nxe4! must have been unpleasant to stare at. >Worth noting that this only works because after Qxf1+ 27.Rxf1 Rxf7 28 Ng5+ Kg8, white has Bc4
May-18-06  jperr75108: Is this game in Fire On Board 1?

  offramp: <jperr75108: Is this game in Fire On Board 1?> It is not, and I doubt it is on FOB II, either.
