Kibitzer's Corner
May-13-18  sleepyirv: Perhaps you've heard the old joke about a patzer challenging to play two grandmasters at the same time in different rooms and then playing whatever one grandmaster did against the other one. According to Shirov, something similar happened here.

Shirov was playing 2nd board here with Anand playing 1st board against Luke McShane. And McShane was playing the exact same line as Shirov, replicating his moves after Shirov played them. Thus "ensuring" his team would win one game depending on what happened. All's well that ends well though, as Anand diverted from Hracek and scored a very nice win. Anand vs McShane, 2003
