  scormus: Black gives a masterly example of the Basmanesque style of play.

  whiteshark: <PhilFeeley: <Another interesting detail about the Shabalov game is he never moved his queen! It defended what he needed to from its home square.>> The empress holds the reins tightly.
Feb-11-10  DiscoJew: Beautiful anecdote gentlemen..!
Feb-12-10  redwhitechess: remember you can win a game by discourage your opponent's attack. here black haven't even start any aggresive move!
Feb-12-10  Blaise99a: Incredibly, but according to my friend Fritz, white's 25. Bg6 was actually quite inspired, and correct. 25. Rg3 really doesn't deliver the goods after Qf6.

What the silicon sez where white went wrong is with the desperate 28. Rb7. Instead of a crazy knock-out, white could have tried to play now for mico-advantage and might well have succeeded.

Here is what the silicon sez (though perhaps it can be improved upon):

28. Ne4 fe
29. Qe4+ Ne7
30. Re1 Ne6
31. de Qa5
32. Rd1 Qc5+
33. kh1 Rb8
34. Qh7 d5
35 Rf7 (or f5 and white gopples up the queen side pawns and has four connected pawns for the piece....or he can simply take Qh6).

pity but that would have been a beauty!

Feb-12-10  Blaise99a: But the real death move seems to have been

37. Nf6 ?


37. Qf3 ! Bd7 (if Ne7, 38. Nf6 Bf7 39. Rh8 + =)
38. h4 Qe8
39. h5 Qe4
40. hg ! =

amazing but true : =
