  plang: Complications starting with 17 f4 are pretty wild. Shirov does not play with this type of style as much as he did earlier in his career.

King march at the end is pretty hairy. I wish I had the guts to allow my king to be chased around like that.

  fredthebear: Certainly, an interesting blend of attack and defense by Shirov. I found no way for Black to capture the flag.
