  plang: 6 f3 is a specialty of Morozovich that allows him to avoid the 6 Be3..Ng4 line. 14..b4 had been played in Moberg-Kupreichik 1992 Rilton Cup; 14..Qa5 was new but does not seem to be an improvement. 18 exf..Bxf5 19 Qxc6..Rac8 20 Qd5+..Qxd5 21 Rxd5..Bxc2+ 22 Ka1..Be4 would have been good for Black. Morozovich was critical of 25..Rc5? recommending instead 25..Re8 still with a solid White edge. 28..Bxd5 29 exd..a5 30 Rg4..Re7 31 Rf4 would have given White a strong initiative along with his extra pawn. 33 Rc7? was an inaccuracy; 33 Rg4..Rg8 34 Rd1 with the idea of a4 would have been better. Short returned the favor with 34..a5?; a tougher defense was 34..Rb4 35 Qf2..a5 when White still has some work to do to win.
