May-20-04  popski: Black can't win here? Hmm, this was close.
May-20-04  Archerforthelord: opposite bishops, enemy king too close to pawns
May-20-04  mack: Short was desperately unlucky like this a few times in the '93 match.
May-19-05  halcyonteam: <opposite bishops, enemy king too close to pawns>


Oct-14-05  ConfusedPatzer: I know! Poor guy, he could had won so many games in that match, his strategy of going all out in every game really worked against Kaspy, he wasn't expecting it. If he had managed his time better(and in several occasions taken more time to move) the match would had been extremely close.
Sep-18-06  tino72: This game was the debut of 8.Na4. Some pawn structure from black! Peter Wells has some interesting comments on the game in his book on the Scotch game (can't vouch for accuracy of quotes but this gives the gist):

"Watching the game live I had the feeling that Black was suffering terribly"

"A memorable defensive display from Short".
