Carlsen versus Shirov

This is my initial take on the game as it unfolded yesterday up until the disputed move 30.Qg4 rather than the option declared safe by Rybka of 30.Rxc7 combined with 33.Rxf7+

I was too worn out to continue watching with the same intensity after that.
In my eyes, they both won. That doesn't mean that I am not delighted that Carlsen has climbed another rung.
