Round seven (Final) Game Two – Kamsky-Shirov 1-0!

Fire On Dim !

Gata Kamsky is leading the final match of The World Cup 2007 by beating Shirov in the 2nd game. Kamsky needs only at least one more point from two remaining calssical game if he want to avoid the rapid or blitz tie-break. If i'm not mistaken, this is the first game that Shirov lost in this World Cup 2007 Championship!
