Oct-09-11  4tmac: 55N-N5! GM Short deserved a draw for his Enterprising Evans.
Oct-09-11  Juninho: 23. Ng5? Am I miss something?
it looks as if Garry in dead trouble....
Oct-09-11  Juninho: for example: 23.Ng5, Bf7 24. Nxf6 and win
Oct-09-11  ughaibu: "No respect! No respect!"
Oct-09-11  Jose Ortiz Elias: 21. ...,d4 is maybe a better defence than 21. ..., f6.

  DarthStapler: After 23. Ng5, why not just Bd7?

  JohnBoy: <Darth> 23.Ng5 Bd7 26.Bg8 looks good to me - at least at a quick glance.

Also, <4tmac> is dead-on. 55.Nb5 B-any Nxa7 Bxa7 puts the black pawn on the wrong color square to queen. Shame.

  AnalyzeThis: Good point about 55. Nb5 and Nxa7. Short must have been low on time, give him 5 seconds to think and he surely sees this.

  JohnBoy: Sorry - in my note above should read 55.Nb5 B-any 56.Nxa7 Bxa7 57.h5
