Improve Your Chess: First Learn End! -  Kramnik-Shirov 1996

Opening: :

Player(s): Kramnik, Shirov

Kramnik comes up with an opening novelty in an unbalanced position and Shirov does not find the best answer. Shirov ends up with many pawns vs Kramnik's extra rook, but the pawns are not dangerous. Kramnik gets into the endgame where his two rooks slowly pick up pawn after pawn as Shirov's single rook is no match. Finally, with one pawn vs three, Kramnik uses his extra rook to put Black into zugzwang and Shirov resigns.
