Oct-17-05  Poisonpawns: gm2 of the match or massacre. Ok the first 17 moves are theory in accelerated dragon but this is obviously good for black whose long term prospects look much better than whites.18..Bb7!? 19.Qe4 e6!? 20.f5! is interesting and maybe why Gata chose Bd7.I love the move 20...Qf5! and 21..Ba4!.The first asking white to go to an inferior ending,the second challenging a defender of the weak pawns.36..Bd4! removing another key defender!40..Rxh3 seems like it wins faster.Nice ending by Gata,Nigel followed some old theoryin acc.dragon and paid for it.
Jan-18-07  pacelli: Short gets annihilated again and embarrassed by lazy preparation for such an important game. Probably he imagined the youngster in front of him would be easy meat, forgetting who's the real, proven master and who's the sorry excuse for a "GM".

  Marmot PFL: The English will never be World Champions until they get to work and learn those endings.
Jul-25-07  piroflip: That's just cheap Short bashing.
This guy was number four in the world.
He didn't reach that by not knowing endings.
Apr-14-10  James Bowman: LOl Marmot PFL I have to agree Shorts ending was pathetic and I often like Short's game. Nicy play by Kamsky who I am not a huge fan of.
