  1. Se apreciaría mejor si pudiera verse el rostro de los jugadores…

  2. ⭐️⭐️⭐️ The images are very good and detailed, best of all appearances .. good job 👍🧑‍🦰

  3. К:б5!! супер браво Алексей

  4. after Ndb5 Black is lost…so its a bit of an opening trap/tactic 4:09 Shirov found it otb

  5. Great game !!
    does anybody know where I can find similar chess pieces like in this video?😀

  6. If you are going to play the Taimanov variation of the Sicilian , you had better know it a lot better than this game shows .

  7. The combinaison starting from Rxg7!! is simply awsome.

  8. That guy Rosen always losesxd i've never seen him win in Any of this videos!!

  9. Cd X b5 ! 1-0. Le petit Maître joue, avec les Noirs, une ligne qu'il ne connait apparemment pas. Le reste "n'est" qu'une affaire de technique et la technique de Shirov est efficace, Txg7 ! est effectivement implacable.

  10. I'm surprised Eric didn't just resign after he screwed the opening up so bad. You're not swindling a GM like Shirov a whole rook down.

  11. In the Taimanov with Nge7 you usually take first Nc6xd4, then play b5 (so Ld4-b6 is not annoying) followed by Ne7-c6 etc.

  12. I thought Blacks Rook prevents White from being able to Castle Queen Side??

  13. Playing the Sicilian isn't a really good idea against Shirov…

  14. Reasuring that even an IM can end up losing a rook to the Knight Rook King fork that I fall for in 40 – 50% of my games!
