How to crush a Grandmaster on no sleep and only thinking one move deep.

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.

Seeking sponsors for the Chicago Open. The Goal is reach $250 by memorial day weekend. For a pledge of $25 my supporter will recieve a complete booklet of my annotated games from the 2013 Chicago Open. Donors at the $50 level will recieve a booklet and Chess lesson or original piece of artwork by Carl Boor. Finally at the $100 super sponsor level you will recieve a booklet, chess lesson/Art piece and a rare edition of one of my favorite chess books from my library (value at least $50). Thank you for helping me play for an GM/IM norm at the prestigious 2013 Chicago Open.

    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

    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!
