Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-10-06  Andrew Chapman: I would like to see some analyis of this game. Are there any good alternatives to 22..O-O-O, for example? How about a6? Then would it be 23.Nb6+ a6xb5 24.Nxa8, which is unclear to me.
Jun-10-06  Feast: After 22...a6 White can simply play 23.Ba4 and Black has created a weak b6 square, possibly for the white knight. Shirov does take risks, like Tal, so there may be weaknesses in some of his games but harder to defend over-the-board. I'm no French expert but the position does look bleak for Black.
