Oct-02-09  whatthefat: Shirov here achieved what nobody else could do at Linares 1994 - draw as Black against Karpov!
Oct-02-09  Aspirador: Btw, there must be some error in the score: 55.Rf6 doesn't look like it was played (makes no sense) and 57...Rb3 also looks strange, 57...gxf3 should be played of course.

Maybe move 55 should be skipped entirely and the black rook remained on d4 to the end?
