  Dim Weasel: Yes, maybe time trouble?
Dec-05-05  Eatman: Even without Shirov's blunder(time trouble for sure), black looks to be winning.
Dec-05-05  I3illieJoe: Ouch, 37..Ne1+ must have hurt
Dec-05-05  notyetagm: Chess really makes me wonder some time. Shirov played 37 ♖f3?? in this game and on the same day Magnus played 33 ♗e4??. If strong tactical players like Shirov and Carlsen can make 1000-level tactical errors, what hope is there for a patzer like me?
Dec-05-05  supertimchan: hmm... In this case you will be checkmated before you are allowed to play such tactical error.
