  HeMateMe: looks like white shouldn't have swapped off all of those pieces without first castling safely.

  HeMateMe: I think black can never get his king off of the back rank, and the queen can't come over to help. White will check mate him at d7. Shirov must have seen this ending well in advance.
Jun-22-16  fireaspect: the very dubious knight sac 12...Nxb4
Computer says white is clearly better after the exchange, probably should have gone for 12...a5 or 12...Bg7
