Jul-09-04  InspiredByMorphy: Why cant white just play 16.Nxc7 ?! It doesen't seem like black gets compensation for the queen sac.
Jul-09-04  seoulmama: InspiredByMorphy, 16.c3 is Shirov's move, which was worth two exclams a while ago. If White takes the Queen directly, Black will indeed get plenty of compensation.

The consensus was that Black is doing v. well after the Q sac.

[presently not in the database, but I've submitted it]

16. c3!! was Shirov's improvement, which in fact transposes to the above game in a few moves but with the difference that White's pawn is on c3 rather than c2 which is useful for restricting the Black N and R.

Shirov vs Topalov, 2001

Bogachkov was apparently Shirov's second at around this time, so 16 c3!! may have been Bogachkov's idea.

23 ...Bc4 is the main improvement in the present game, the apparent verdict being that Black is nevertheless OK, despite Shirov's improvement.

(the above is derived from Gazza's notes on Shirov-Topalov in Revolution in the 70s).
