Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-19-10  Sacsacmate: No one has come here...?! Surprising. Too complicated for me... but I thought 4 pawns for a piece is good compensation...but only Shirov could allow would be interesting to check what fitzy or Rybka have to say about this...
Jan-19-10  Marmot PFL: In notes to an earlier game Shirov mentions 5 g4 but says that it seems "too aggressive".
May-20-12  J.MASSANET: 9...b5!( Black has no time to fortify his position w/9...Qc7?!)1o.Bb3 Qa5 11.0-0-0 Ba6 and black is ok.
Nov-29-14  fisayo123: First time Mr. Fire on the board unleashes his Shirov gambit. An attacking genius has to attack.
