I've been playing the solid Slav defense recently, because Benoni positions, no matter how much I like the dynamics of it, do not give me good enough results and fun against equal and stronger rated players. And if GM Shirov, a great attacking player, likes to play the Slav defense as black, then I should at least have a sip and taste of it as well !

 

 


 

In this Slav defense game I was playing against a rather tough opponent I would often lose against, though we were at 17.5-17.5 before the start of this game.
