Kibitzer's Corner
May-02-06  offramp: The phrase 'piece activity' springs to mind.
May-02-06  whatthefat: White's centralized army after the 34th move is quite unique.

  plang: Shirov's play with his minor pieces is impressive. I particularly like 18 Nb5 and 23 Ba3. 24 c5 is not at all obvious; luiquidating black's weak pawn.
