  Honza Cervenka: 19.Bxf7 is a pretty shot. If Black takes the Bishop 19...Kxf7, then 20.Rab1 Qc3 21.Rfc1 forces the Queen to leave a1-h8 diagonal where it covers Bishop on f6 and 20...Bxg5 or 21...Bxg5 is not possible as the Knight takes the Bishop with check.

Yeah its a beautiful trick and a bit vague for a layman. Got me more than 3 minutes to realize the continuation after 19.Bxf7 Kxf7.

  plang: Chess fashion is fascinating. I have Samarian's book on the Queens Gambit Declined (1974); it doesn't even mention 8 cxd. It was fairly popular a century or so ago, was not played between 1946 and 1970 (at least in this database) and now is a main line. 13..g6 had been played in Van der Sterren-Bonsch Munich 1992 (not included in this database); 13..Qb6? was a new but not successful innovation. Short had overlooked that his intended response 16..Bf5 could be answered by 17 Qh4! with a decisive attack. The alternative 22..Ne5 is not effective after 23 Bd5..Nd3 24 Re3..Qf4 25 Qg3..Qxg3 26 fxg..Ne5 27 Bxb7.
