  tamar: 14...b4 looks like Giri's new move, improving on 14...Nxc5 15 Bxb5+ in T Nyback vs S Kojima, 2008 1-0

15...Rh4 is the startling follow-up, temporarily giving up a piece, but setting up a grand demolition of White's whole King defense.

Oct-08-09  patzer2: <tamar> Excellent post! The "grand demolition" actually begins after 21. Kf1?! (relatively better is 21. Be3 Bc6 ) 21...Rxe2!! 22. Kxe2 Ne5!

  tamar: <patzer2> I always check Giri's games these days and try to figure out what is striking about his play.

I remember <Calli> writing about a Pillsbury game

<maybe that its not really a king attack but a demolition of Lasker's whole position.> Pillsbury vs Lasker, 1896

That is the impression I got here.

Oct-28-09  holy tramp: Holy Cats! I just chose this game at random, saw the Dutch Championship link, picked this game from the stack. Had no idea who the gunslinger Giri was. I watched this wild game unfold, no one castling, lots of in-your-face aggression and bravado. Very entertaining. I actually thought white was in control up until move 13 or so. Shows what a patzer I am. Then to find out that Giri is 15 only yrs old?!? Am eager to check out his other games - right now...

Giri's own comment: "21.Be3 Bd5 22.Qd1 Rxe3 (...b3+ 23.Nc3 Rxc3 also wins) 23.fxe3 Bh4+ 24.Kf1 Be4 was the win I saw during the game".
