Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-13-04  shr0pshire: At move 29 i think that Shirov is a bit worse than Adams.

Shirov fights back with a very instructive rook endgame.

Very nice

May-13-07  ARubinstein: "Vintage Shirov"

One of Shirov's most impressive endgames, which says a lot because he is famous for his brilliant endgame play.

Apr-11-09  zdigyigy: Whites pawns, Rooks and King are much better, this is an easy win for Shirov.
Mar-07-16  QueensideCastler: White mates in 42 | Lomonosov Tablebases
