Feb-13-10  alexrawlings: Very entertaining game to play through.
Feb-13-10  Jim Bartle: Shirov says 20. Rd3 was a bad mistake, and he was just hanging on until Lautier erred with 30...Bg7. He says after 30...Rg7 he could have saved a draw only with a long sequence beginning with 31. Rxf6, that he wouldn't have found with only five minutes on his clock.
