  Albertan: According to my Chessbase 11 program the eco code for the opening played in this game is B30:B30 Sicilian Defense: Nimzovich-Rossolimo attack , and not B23.

  luzhin: Note that 23.h3 prevented Shirov's idea of Qxf2+! and Ng4+ followed by Nxh6.
Aug-19-14  howlwolf: Darek: Shirov may have not played completely up to par but the young man played a fine game and had the initiative from the get-go, so his good play should get most of the credit for the result.
