1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 d6! and Black is O.K.
Since some people wanted a Philidor thread on it's own, I'll use this one. So it's up to Mnb and company to prove me wrong.
Please keep this thread serious and to the point! AKA 1, no evaluations...

Philidor - Shirov's Refutation
In 2006 Alexey Shirov crushed M. Klinova in an impressive game that continued:
[Event "Gibtelecom Masters"]
[Site "Gibraltar ENG"]
[Date "2006.??.??"]
[White "Shirov,A"]
[Black "Klinova,M"]<b...[/b]
My question is, does white have enough compensation for the pawn after 10...b5 11.Bb3 a5 12.a4 bxa4!? as shown in the diagram below:  
[IMAGE]

White To Move

Should White prove to be better in the above diagram then things look mighty grim for him in the Hanham variation.
What say you?
