  An Englishman: Good Afternoon: Thought White's opening play was completely harmless until 14...Bb7 and 16.Qb3! made it clear Black had problems. 13.Bxc6 might have contained a more potent venom than immediately obvious.
May-11-17  protonchess: It is hard to believe White has more than equality around move 35. What do our silicon friends say?

  HeMateMe: Those pawns were Baad boys.
May-12-17  CountryGirl: Jobava never gave Short the chance to give back a rook for the knight and that dangerous central pawn. A well played, controlled endgame. Jobava has a reputation of being unorthodox, like Shirov has the rep of being a wild attacking player. Yet interestingly they are two of the best endgame players among the top players.
May-13-17  Chatu Ranga: The position after 59.♔g4 has some similarities to the position after 53.♔g4 in this game: Ivanchuk vs Short, 1995.

  sleepyirv: Curious there are only two Jobava-Short games in the database and both end with Baadur mating Short.
