Shirov - Kramnik, 73rd Tata Steel

Nov 24, 2012, 10:43 AM |

I decided to do a Solitaire chess game, and the game I chose was Shirov vs Kramnik, in a Tata Steel tournament. What I like about this excercise, is that you KNOW you are going to win, and I knew I was going to beat Shirov! What a boost in my moral! I suggest you cover the moves with a piece of paper, and try to guess the moves as we go along. Anyway, I started the excercise here:




Grandmasters always have a way to complicate things, they seem to go out of their way to make this study hard! I knew this game would be good, as Shirov is a great attacking player.

A truly amazing game. That is what is nice about this study, some of the games are tactical and will improve your chess a lot, although some are boring, and slow, and will put you to sleep ;)

Thanks for reading, if you guessed the moves, let me know how you did, and have a great day!
