    Well, as promised, I'm posting my game from last nights exibition game with 27 players vs GM Alexei Shirov. He won 26, no losses and 1 draw.

    As for my game, please take off 300 points from my rating.
    I have not played OTB for many years, so now I suppose, I'm unrated, apart from my rating here on RHP. to be quite honest, I played horribly with blunders everywhere, like, for example, move 10. Na2 ??? OMG 🙁
    Anyway, I'm not trying to make excuses, but I have been spoiled using the analysis interface feature available here on RHP, so in comparison OTB, it was nerve racking...

    In this game, you will see my moves are rather painful to watch and see how it became rather unpleasant for white from very early on.
    So have fun if you want to analyse it.

    There is no shame in losing to Shirov.

    Take off 300 points off your rating? It says you are unrated, so you are minus 300?

    Whoever snagged that draw should frame the game score.

    If shirov got a draw from Kaspy in a simul he should frame it. Isn't his record like 11 losses now wins?
