Power Chess by Shabba and W S Browne
Opening: E70, A10: King's Indian, English
Player(s): Tony Miles, Alexander Shabalov, Walter Browne, Serper
Larry Christiansen was a friend of the late Walter Shawn Browne, who prematurely passed away on June, 24 2015. In this episode of his acclaimed show, Larry continues his tribute to the great Browne, going through fond memories and funny anectodes. Today's game is the encounter between Walter Browne and the late Tony Miles, played in Tilburg, 1978. This was the moment of the peak for Browne, when he was arguably one of the strongest players in the West. As an appetizer, Larry shows us a clip from the game Grigori Serper vs. Alexander Shabalov from the US championship played in Seattle in 2000. The game is a very amusing "bamboozle", where Shabalov hyper-aggressively attacks and intimidates his opponent into submission.
