Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-26-07  PawnOfTheDead: This is an absolutely amazing finish by Shirov. The position after 33 Rf8 is incredible. Black seems to have lots of options but unfortunately for him all of them lose. It is diffiult enough working this out with the position on the board in front of you. Working it out several moves ahead in your head takes a special kind of talent.
