|Jul-06-05|| ||AlfieNoakes: The bishop sacrfice is ludicrously well planned|
|Nov-18-05|| ||TopaLove: 19.♗xg4 and 23.♕h6+ are incredible! Two pieces sacrificed and the most incredible thing is that this game has been played in Linares.|
if 24 ... ♘f6 then 25.♖f1 and black is finished after some moves.
|Oct-17-06|| ||Runemaster: In the circumstances, actually good defence from Short to last as long as he did.|
|Dec-29-07|| ||kingscrusher: I have video annotated this game at:-
|May-11-08|| ||sfairat: IMHO, 40 ...Bg6 is a mistake. Better 40 ...Rg2! forcing the exchange of White's queen for black rook and bishop. Black can then help himself to the defenseless h6 pawn, too. The mistake is especially clear knowing that Black does exchange the rook and the bishop for white's queen a few moves later only to end up in a significantly worse position than he would have had if he forced the exchange on move 40, when the f7 pawn was protected by the knight.|
|Jul-02-15|| ||Fusilli: <sfairat> 40...Rg2+ is better than 40...Bg6 in the sense that black lasts longer, but Short was lost anyway. After the captures, white can, for example, play b3, centralize his king a little bit, and penetrate with the rook through the g-file, then moving to the queen's flank to slaughter pawns. If black keeps his king on h7-h8 to prevent Rg8, then white will march his king up through f6-e7 and slaughter the pawns again.|
<kingscrusher> Nice video of this game!

I think, how did those black pawns get to h5 and g4? Petrosian tried everything to keep his King's castle intact...

...unless it was "useful" to stretch his King's legs:

...which looks much healthier. Less intersting - but safer.
|Sep-24-16|| ||saffuna: Which is the move that Short says Kasparov laughed at during the game?|
|Jan-04-17|| ||Richard Taylor: He may have chuckled at 11. ... g5 but it isn't such a bad move. Kasparov's 9. Nc2 is not as good as the more common moves played there.|
