    Yeah, considered it, but I need a lot of space to fill, so that one is pretty much out of the question

    Man, there was a nice game with Carlsen over summer, but I forget his opponent.

    I loved the ending to Shirov - Aronian at the Tal Memorial (http://www.chessgames.com/perl/chessgame?gid=1437581)

    Polgar - Topalov (Essent)? (http://www.chessgames.com/perl/chessgame?gid=1433094)

    The Aronian one? Yes, probably what you're thinking of. Killer zugzwang - black rook in the corner, and white can't take it with the king.
