1. e4 e6 2. d4 d5 3. Nc3 Nf6 4. e5 Nfd7 5. f4 c5 6. Nf3 Nc6 7. Be3 cxd4 8. Nxd4 Qb6 Yes we can all can clearly see, that Alexei Shirov is not on our abonents list of Chess Evolution. In our May edition You can find great and very deep analyses by Etienne Bacrot of current position. 9.Qd2 should be the move now!
9. Qd2 Qxb2 10. Rb1 Qa3 Alexei is going into main lines...till now we are in the book! 11.Bb5 would be the right move now
11. Bb5 Nxd4 12. Bxd4 a6 and now! 13.Rb3 Qe7 and 14.Ba4!N a very strong novelty analysed by Etienne Bacrot for exclusive for CE May issue.
13. Bxd7+ Bxd7 14. Rb3 GM Naiditsch: Now the game is following Karjakin-Nakamura, Shirov missed his CE novelty chance and black is doing fine. Instead of Bd7, he should have played Rb3-Qe7 and Ba4! N
14... Qe7 15. Rxb7 Qh4+ 16. Qf2 Be7 17. Qxh4 Bxh4+ 18. Kd2 Bd8 19. Rhb1 Bc6 20. Rb8 Rxb8 21. Rxb8 O-O 22. Rc8 Bb7 23. Rb8 Bc6 24. Rc8 Bb7 ½-½
