Feb-09-06  azaris: I didn't really get the idea behind g5 and Qg6. Why did Short just let the bishop dominate on g2 and neglected his queenside?
Aug-04-10  aj415: i guess he knew he was going to lose but was being stubborn?
Jan-29-11  Chester7007: Karpov Rocks!
Sep-05-11  Everett: A complete manhandling of the Dutch by Karpov. He first stuffs Black's initiative on the k-side with 10.f4 and then proceeds to create weaknesses on the q-side, turning his LSB into a great piece. 24.e3 was a surprise to me, though makes sense afterward, as ..c5 is likely answered simply with 25.exd4 cxd4 and Karpov's pawn majority with the ideal placement of the LSB, will be harder do stop than Short's lone pawn on d4.
