Shirov (2700) - Dreev (2654), 2013
White to move


a) White played Re7!? Calculate this line and evaluate it.
b) Super GM challenge: try to improve on Alexey Shirov's play and suggest a different continuation.

Well, if [B]NxRe7, then [W]Nf7 to attack both black rooks. If [B]QxRe7, then [W]Qg4 for check.

In my opinion, Mr. Shirov could have chosen the following line, capitalising on the precarious position of the Black's King. The main line, as I see it, runs as follows: 
1.Be3 NxR  
2.NxN Qd7 
3.Bxa7 QxN 
4.Rc1+ Kd7 
5.Bb5+ Kd6 
6.Bc5+ Ke5 
7.Qd4+ Kf5 
8.Bd3+ Qe4 
9.BxQ+ dxB 
10.Qe3 winning. 
This is, of course, as an amateur saw it :)

Mr
I like Be3, threating Dreev\\\\\\\'s knight and clearing the space to threaten Rc1 (pinned queen), thereby driving the knight back: 
 
Nc6,Qg4 
or  
NxR,NxN (fork) 
 
looking for follow-up moves like Rc1 and especially Qg4 & Bf4 for a great double diagonal! 
 
:)
