Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-28-04  InspiredByMorphy: Nice play by Shabalov against a formidable opponent!
Feb-08-04  Lawrence: Junior showed me why Shirov loses his Knight. Wherever you move it the evaluation is worse than losing it outright.
Feb-08-04  Bitzovich: Two Tal students deal it out.. I expected a little more fireworks.
Aug-18-05  DanRoss53: 20. ♕h3! is impressive. After White plays 21. g4, 21... ♘xg4! seems just as valid as 21... c5! giving Black a formitable lead after 22. f3 exf3 23. ♖xf3 ♖xe2 24. ♖xh3 ♖xb2
Jul-14-06  Whitehat1963: Mighty Shirov quickly falls victim to the Opening of the Day against a weaker opponent.
