Alexei Shirov has always been known for sharp and creative play. While preparing my April Tactics Ebook, I came across this interesting game of his, where Black had to make a couple of precise decisions:
Grachev – Shirov, 2014, analysis position 1
Black to move. How can he win the queen on a spot?
Grachev – Shirov, 2014, analysis position 2
Black to move. How can he regain the piece and obtain better position?
For the full analysis, see my April Tactics book, or you can just view the game here.
An unexamined life is not worth living.
