Aug-21-04  Knezh: what does this game have to do with Short?
Premium Chessgames Member
  patzer2: White blunders with 20. Bd3?? (better was the simple but solid 20. Rc1 = or perhaps the more difficult 20 Qd2 ). After this mistake, Black has a winning "double attack" via 20. Bd3?? Bxd3! 21. Nxd3 (21. Rac1 Nc5! 22. Nxd3 Qxa2+ 23. Kf3 Qxb3 ) 21...Rc4! White resigns in this position, since 22. Qb2 Qxb2 23. Rc7+ follows with a decisive Black material advantage.

  patzer2: Knezh, in my initial post I had mistaken Short for Nunn. In the only game after this in the Opening Explorer, Short had a decisive result in Short vs Timman, 1994.
