May-19-06  Resignation Trap: Kamsky makes it look easy to defeat Shirov in this game.
Sep-14-15  Poisonpawns: 18.Qd2!
Jun-02-20  superstoned: Kamsky includes 30...Kxf7 31.Rxd4 as the game's finish, writing that after those moves "Black resigned as White's two extra pawns ensure a technical win" (Kamsky, G. "Chess Gamer Vol. 1 Awakening", Thinker's Publishing 2019).
