  Chessmensch: Watson discusses this game in his book, "Mastering the Chess Openings," Volume I, page 68.

  zydeco: Short suffers a long time for playing 18....d5. A nice demonstration of how an older player beats a talented youngster. Seirawan is very patient chipping away at the hanging pawns.
Jul-14-16  weary willy: Eh? Seirawan born March 24, 1960, Short born 1 June 1965... you're not claiming that Seirawan won because he was 5 years older?! Knew more tricks?!

  zydeco: <weary willy> I take it back. I guess I think of Seirawan as such an elder statesman that I didn't realize he was ever young.
