  whiteshark: <24. Nxe5> is another game.
May-11-07  laskersteinitz: How does Black get the rook?
May-11-07  Marmot PFL: Very easy - 59.Ka3 Qd6+ 60.Ka2 Qe6+ 61.Kb1 Qe1+ for example.
May-12-07  Davolni: <Marmotpfl> can I ask you where you are from?

I ve been postig this question in different forums, never got an answer back from u, may be u haven't seen my questions. thanks in advance

May-12-07  tal lover: <whiteshark> on 43.Bf4 Short realizes that he has no square for his knight, and black is threatering something like 43...e5 44.Nf5 Nxe4 45.Nh4+ Rxh4 46.Bxh4 Nf3+ winning back the exchange and a pawn up, and every try to create a square for his knight will cost one pawn, so he chooses the line that put him in a rook endgame which in my view is his best try
May-12-07  pacelli: Naiditsch shows how to win with black in a position Kasparov couldn't against Short (game 2 of their totally one sided 1993 title match)
May-15-07  aragorn69: <pacelli> One-sided if you look at the final score. Not that one-sided IMHO if you actually look at the games... Cheers.
