  technical draw: His mistake was probably 20...Qb4 removing the queen from the kingside.
Dec-12-05  cotdt: 25...d4 was Shirov's error, and then 28...Nb6 was another terrible move that ended the game. 31...Qxc2 was stupid too, allowing the game to end much quicker than 31...Kh7. Nice way to finish off Shirov's head. Shirov made so many errors in this game he must have lost his mind, or Kamsky used some serious psychological warfare against him.
