  Ron: After 21. ... h6 White leaves his bishop en prise by playing 22. Qd3; Short takes the proferred bishop and Smeets conducts an elegant attack.

  Ron: I wondered how White could continue the attack if Black had played 27. ... Qe7. This might be a way: If 27. .. Qe7 then 28. Qh6+ Rg7 29. Rad1 Bc6 30. b4 cxb4 31. exf7 Qxf7 32. Re6 etc

I would be interested in seeing if the attack after leaving the bishop en prise is sound.
