Chess puzzle: A tip from Shirov

GM Alexei Shirov

Hello Everyone,

Here is a neat endgame by Alexei Shirov against none other than Vladimir Kramnik. This position has been taken from their game during the European Club Championships of 1998.

Shirov was White. Can you spot how he won this against Kramnik? Don't run the flashplayer to see the solution before you think for a while.
