|Nov-05-08|| ||KingG: <dkappe1> After 21...Qxd7 22.exd7 Rcd8 23.Rad1, Black is a apwn down, and paralysed by the pawn on d7. If nothing else, White will win in the long run by advancing his K-side pawns.|

|Nov-03-14|| ||Tim Delaney: The quiet move, 26.g3 is laced with venom. What can Black do about the advance h4 and h5? At first, 26 ... Qf7 seems to suffice, because of the attack on f2, but it's a mirage: 27.Nxg5+ hxg5, 28.Qh5+ Kg8, 29.Bxg6 Qxf2+, Kh1 and there are no more checks. White's mate threat then decides the issue.|

|Nov-03-14|| ||morfishine: Gotta love this game. If there is such a thing as the "Kasparov Technique" or style, this game pretty much defines it|
I never realized Kasparov was only 2 years older than Short
|Nov-03-14|| ||WCC Editing Project: |
The event field is incorrect.
You can see there's a character in the place name that didn't code properly.
Result: the game was played in the imaginary Kingdom of <Brssel>.
|Nov-03-14|| ||Castleinthesky: 19.Ne6 is brilliant. Also, impressive is how White takes Black's Queen out of the picture. A very methodical and instructive game.|
|Nov-03-14|| ||kevin86: It looks like a quick mate is in the offing.|
|Nov-03-14|| ||knight knight: This game is analyzed by Raymond Keene in the video "How to Play Like Kasparov & Short".|
|Nov-03-14|| ||dzechiel: Playing through the game, I wanted to play 33 Rh7+ instead of the queen move. I think they both lead to the same result (and it's hard to argue with a move that gets your opponent to resign).|

An illustrative example of an IQP where the d4-d5 advance opens up the game in White's favor. Fritz certainly didn't have any earlier improvements before Move 23 when it was already so it's hard to identify where Black erred besides 16 ... Nd7 allowing 17. d5.
16. Ra1 was an intriguing choice.
