Fire on Board is tough. In Laurier vs Shirov 1990 black was playing with two bishops versus two rooks, having in compensation only two pawns and an insecure white king. And black won. You get dizzy following such games.

Yeah, I emerged from it with the distinct feeling that I've been playing checkers this whole time...

There are 2 players that absolutely make me feel like a 'tard when i play over them.  Shirov, and Tal.
