Dec-05-08  Abdooss: Short found the novelty 12..d5! prior to his 1993 World Championship Match against Kasparov. He dared not play it as White, as he feared Kasparov's legendary & fearsome preparation. Alas! Kasparov's Novelties were great but he is still Human.

As we now know, Kavalek found (and played) this move in 1965. He told Short about it while helping him prepare for Short's 1993 match with Kasparov.
