  Cannon Fodder: It's interesting here how white's position falls apart after 16 Nc2? Tiger plays a nice combination leaving the opponent (1) unable to castle, (2) with a knight all the way in the corner, and (3) absolutely no pawn cover; and material is about even once the fireworks have all gone off.

Obviously Hirn, at 2300+, is a way better player than I can hope to be, but I'm wondering what he should have played on his 16th move.

Nov-23-15  st.dvy: Hirn actually lost this game in the opening. There was absolutely no need, or time, for 6.h3, followed by 7.g4(?). Perrsson is a relentless tactical player, so positional mistakes just make it easy for him. 13.Bg2, instead of c3 would have really helped. It's embarrassing for a master to play like this; yet inspiring to witness the punishment. Hirn does make for a lovely corpse though.
