This game against former US Champion GM Alex Shabalov was played this year at the 2013 Cardinal Open in Columbus Ohio. It was the final round and as usual everything depended on a victorious result. I dedicate this game to correspondance WC Hans Berliner. Without reading his book, "The System" I could never have played this game.
entertaining...and against a very strong opponent.thanks for posting.
That review was written by IM John Watson, not by IM Jeremy Silman.
I looked up the book that you were referring to. Silman seems to disagree with your impression of the book: http://wp.jeremysilman.com/book_reviews_jw/jw_The_System.html
I love your games with horizonal play! It's like watching Tal, but sound!
This game is just too TACTICAL for me. I can't think so much tactics...this game is much better than most of Tal's games
Yes the computer engine is right to point out that my 18.Bg5 is not the strongest move. I was surprised myself in this game when he did not play Ne5 inducing b3. Instead of 18.Bg5 ?! It seems like 18.Ng3 or even 18.b3 would have both been better moves keeping the white square bind...
I would be interested but you live pretty far from me.
What would you have played on 18...Ne5 ? The idea is that 19.f4 is met by 19...Nxe4! and perhaps Black can dream of tactics on the long diagonal and Nc4 ideas as well. Perhaps you can take on f6 and then play f4, but then 19.Bxf6 Bxf6 20.f4 Nc4 21.Qd3 b5 looks fine for Black.
Speed Chess for money! Yes by all means that would be wonderful. I have no idea who you are but yes let play some blitz. Also consider getting some training from me, I am one of the top coaches in the Chicago land area !
Why did you delete my encouraging post, Carl? We should play blitz again sometime! Although you took my money last time... :( I even left the chess set I had bought by the table and had to come back for it!
I loved this game. Especially 22. e5!
Nice job! I loved 29. fxg6! Trippled isolated pawns FOR THE WIN!!!! XD
My comments may require intelligence and creativity to understand! Not to mention a sense of humor...
