Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-12-07  Bingat29: If he saves the beleguered rook, then Qh6 followed by Bf6 are the killer blows.
Jun-26-08  StarJock: Shirov's downfall was 33...Nc5. This allowed Topalev's Queen to go to d2 with a double attack on the Knight and Rook, while gaining the diagonal to h6 square, where Topalev's three pieces harass the King. Better was 33...Nf8 so the Knight can come to the aide of it's King.
