  plang: 11..Na6 preparing ..0-0-0 was an improvement over the previously played 11..Bxc5. Shirov thought that Black would have had an advantage had he played 14..Nxc5. After 16..Nd4?! White started to improve his position; either 16..h6 17 fxe..dxe 18 Bc3..Nd4 (Shirov's suggestion) or 16..Bd4 17 Bc3..Bxc3+ 18 bxc..h6 19 fxe..dxe 20 0-0..f5 (Karpov's suggestion) offered good compensation for the piece. Perhaps 26..Qxh5 27 Rxf2..Qxe2 28 Rxe2..Nd5 would have been netter when the position seems balanced. Black erred with 31..Qg1?; 31..Qd5 would likely have been good enough for a draw. 45..Qxc2? was a blunder losing quickly.
