Shirov was gracious throughout, signing his books for fans and scoresheets for the players. Immaculately dressed in suit and tie, he even offered to continue the debate at his hotel afterwards, inviting players to go over their games with him there.
Final score: Shirov +17 -2 =6. Losses were to Zaidun Alganabi and John Hall. Draws were with Alex Rapoport, William Rutherdale, Rune Pederson, Erwin Casareno, Pepin Manalo, and Arkadiy Ugodnikov.
