Incredible Draw!

The other day I was playing through a couple of games in Alexi Shirov’s Fire On Board and finally got around to playing over a game given without notes in the Foreword by GM Jonathan Speelman who expressed regret that Shirov did not include the game in the book.  I have to agree with Speelman that it’s unfortunate Shirov didn’t annotate it for us.  In fact I wasn’t able to find annotations anywhere.  It’s not possible for me to present it here with any notes because it’s way too complicated and I don’t trust engine analysis; the material is too imbalanced and I don’t think an engine evaluation could be trusted.  An amazing game.
