Nov-15-08  popski: Huh, cool to watch when Shirov burn the board!
Nov-15-08  SniperOnG7: E Inarkiev vs Shirov, 2008.

Anyone else wants seconds? Buhmann? No?
Didn't think so ;)

Nov-15-08  hedgeh0g: Why didn't White simply play 23. Kg2 and accept a perpetual?
Nov-15-08  shr0pshire: <hedgeh0g> I would assume that white thought he could either use the extra rook and convert it into a winning position, or maybe Shirov was down on time and thought he could outplay him on time. I didn't see the game and I think that only Mr. Buhmann himself could answer this definitively.

Your point is well taken though, white should have in retrospect played for the draw at move 23.

Jan-20-09  patzer2: I saw this in a Sunday Jan 18, 2009 New York Times Chess column as the featured game. In the final position, Shirov pulls off a neat double attack combination with 31...Rxd2! The point being that the follow-up 32. Qxd2 Qc5+ (double attack) simultaneously checks the King and the unprotected Rook on e7, leaving Black a piece up and with an easy win.
Jan-20-09  Riverbeast: This was a thorough a*s whipping from pillar to post
Jan-20-09  patzer2: <<hedgeh0g> Good catch on the draw by perpetual White missed with 23. Kg2 Qh3+ 24. Kf3 Qg4+ 25. Kg2 =. After 23. Ke3?! White's game starts to go down, and following 25. Kc2? he's busted.
