Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-22-03  Open Defence: This game illustrates that Black can play 11..Q x g5
Oct-22-03  refutor: <Black can play 11. ... Qxg5> are you sure? i think Black's opening choice was part of the reason he lost in Kasparov vs Shirov, 2001 of course, Kasparov does have a huge plus score v. Shirov but he looked to have the better of it throughout the game
Oct-29-03  Open Defence: refutor - I think the Qxg5 is playable (Shirov vs Timman) it's how you play after that which becomes important, no doubt among super GMs the Open Variation may be a tad risky as you do concede positional pluses which are enough to cost a game at that level, the debate about the Open Defence continues - I love this opening!!
Jan-04-04  Phoenix: Also to note, in Kasparov vs Shirov, 2001 Black played 19...g6, not 19...Rd5 like in this game.
Feb-19-05  aw1988: Qxg5 is certainly playable, although fearless.
