Jul-04-16  cunctatorg: Can someone explain to me (and to all of us!...) why this Shirov-Shabalov variation appears during the last years to be out of fashion or -at least- to be much less popular than during the nineties?!?

  plang: The purpose of 7..dxc is to give the knight an active square to move to so there is an argument for 8 g5 !? being unnecessary; Dominguez recommends 8 Bxc4 instead. 11..Rc8 was new; 11..Qc7 had been played once previously. Dominguez considered 18 Bc1?! to be too slow recommending 18 Rc1 though after 18..Rfd8 Black still would have had the advantage. White may have overlooked 20..c3!. The alternative 21 Ne1..Bb7 22 e5..Be7 23 Bd3..a5 24 Qh3..g6 25 Rg4..Rfd8 26 Rh4..Nf8 27 Bc2..Bd5 would also have been strong for Black.
