Feb-22-06  who: 51...Bxg4 52.Bxf6 Bxh5 53.Bxg5 with an opposite color bishop draw.
Aug-18-07  MUG: "This is the one moment in the game <move 37> when Nigel might have won. His move 37.g4 makes his pawns too inflexible. He really had to play 37.g3 with the plan of h4 to make a dangerous passed pawn." - Kasparov
Jul-02-09  Knight13: I agree with Kasparov. g4 doesn't make any sense!
Jun-24-14  RookFile: 37. g4 is defensive minded. Short doesn't want to allow ...f5 from black, and black gets a central pawn majority rolling. Apparently, g3 and h4 is stronger, but I can understand why he didn't way to see those central pawns advancing from black.
