  Honza Cervenka: What about 29...g5 30.Re6 threatening 31.Rxf6+ or 31.Ne5 and 32.Ng4#?

  Honza Cervenka: By the way, this game has two other versions in the database: one with a little bit different order of moves in the opening - A Anastasian vs Shirov, 1989 - and one with a little bit shorter gamescore - A Anastasian vs Shirov, 1989
Jun-20-03  alec50: Thanks Honza. Pretty convincing. Out of curiosity, what made you note my kibitz so quickly?

  Honza Cervenka: It was just a coincidence.
