Opposite Side Castling Madness

Here is a game from the 61st Russian Championship Higher League, GM Inarkiev - GM Shomoev with full annotations and commentary:





In this game we saw a fun double edged battle where the players castled on opposite sides of the board. Usually when this occurs it will be a fierce battle where both sides will rush to attack the other King first. In this case white was the one who was able to win the race to the opponents King which allowed for a decisive attack to claim the win.
