Shirov, Alexei vs. Dautov, Rustem - German Team Cup 2023/2024 1-0

In the German Team Cup 2023/2024 on June 16, 2024, Rustem Dautov, playing as Black, made the move Bh4 against Alexei Shirov. This move directly threatens to win material by attacking a vulnerable piece or forcing White into a defensive posture. However, it might overlook superior opportunities for more threatening maneuvers or tactical sequences. By placing the bishop on h4, Rustem secures an important outpost from where it can exert influence on the board, potentially disrupting White's plans. This move signifies a proactive development of the bishop, aiming for active play rather than immediately focusing on other pieces' development or defensive considerations.
