  Jim Bartle: The deciding game, putting Short into the semi-finals vs. Karpov.
Apr-11-13  computer chess guy: Very complex game. White's play can be improved at several points: in particular as noted by Ftacnik, 37. Rh4 looks to be winning. However, the decisive mistake was 39. Qh5? (Qe4 was better) after which Short found the best move .. h6!.
