Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-28-03  refutor: shirov needs to work on his blindfold skills ;)
Mar-29-03  BLD9802: Ooh. Shirov must have been kicking himself after this game.
Nov-22-03  PinkPanther: Shirov has had quite a few problems with blindfold chess. In fact another game against Kramnik comes to mind.
Nov-22-03  PinkPanther: Kramnik vs Shirov, 2001
Nov-22-03  Benjamin Lau: Oh well, at least this time, the blunder is less obvious.
Nov-22-03  FeArMySkiLLz: nice play
Nov-22-03  Benjamin Lau: Are you by any chance GM Shirtless Rocketman?
Nov-22-03  FeArMySkiLLz: who? me
Jan-03-04  Prophylaxis: I think we should all sign a petition barring Shirov from any more blindfold games, he should really stop abusing his rating like this.
Jan-04-04  Phoenix: <he should really stop abusing his rating like this. >

As far as I know, the Amber Blindfold and Rapid tournament is not rated.

Jun-05-07  Hot Logic: Greedy Shirov! Takes a pawn and loses a queen.

Both games Shirov loses his queen to White's dark squared bishop, maybe there is method to his madness?
