World Cup: Any Analog to Shimanov - Kamsky Game?

The craziest game of the World Cup so far took place yesterday between Shimanov and Kamsky. Russian GM needed only a win and he chose King's Gambit. If only checking the game without looking at the names of the opponents, one may describe everything happening on the board with only two words: "women's chess". Emil Sutovsky asked through his Facebook page if there is any classical game between top-level GMs with so many blunders. There's still no answer to his question.

Both players missed winning moves several times. Namely, White already after the opening could beat on f7, instead Shimanov played 20.Rf2?, while Kamsky missed winning 20...Qxh2+! Then Alexander turned his winning position into a completely lost one with his 23rd and 24th moves; Gata was last to mistake though: 31...g2?? These are only the brightest examples of blunders.  

Today GMs will compete in playoff.
