An interesting drawing line by Shirov

Alexi Shirov had an excellent result in the recently finished Lublin tournament. He scored 5/7 to finish half a point ahead of Grachev and Zhigalko. In the last round he was paired against Grachev and found an inventive way to maintain his half point lead over his opponent.
