Jul-21-02  refutor: what an unbelievable game! i'm assuming why this is why 16. ... Qd6?! is never played. amazing that shirov won this!
Nov-05-05  KingG: Kramnik improved on this game a year later against Ivanchuk with 17 Bf4!. After this move White already has a solid advantage.

eg after Kramnik's recomended 17...Qa6 comes 18 dxe6 fxe6(18...Qxe6 19 Re1 Qa6 20 Bxb7+ Qxb7 21 Qc2 ) 19 Bxb7+ Qxb7 20 Qe2 and i wouldn't like to be black.

Ivanchuk played 17...e5?! and lost in 25 moves. I don't think 16...Qd6?! has been played since.
