Fire on Board in Morelia

Here is a game from the 2008 Morelia/Linares tournament, GM Shirov - GM Anand with full annotations and commentary:

 

 

 

This game is a perfect example of the power behind the thematic exchange sacrifice on c3 in the Sicilian. Black gave up the rook for the knight on c3 to permanently ruin the pawns around the white king and then black was able to get a knight on c3 which totally dominated the rest of the game.
