Here is a game from the current 2008 Corus Group B event, GM Short - GM L'Ami with full annotations and commentary:

 

 

 

This game is a good example of creative opening play and imagination in chess. It shows that you do not always have to play a Ruy Lopez, Sicilian, or Slav opening (which we see all of the time) to have success. Sometimes an opening surprise to catch your opponent off guard can also bring you success!
