  GrahamClayton: 13...♘f5 planning 14...♘d4 removes a key defender of f7, allowing White to play the powerful sacrifice 14.♘f7!.

Wolff's position was difficult, eg 13...♕d7 14. ♖c1 with pressure against c5, or 13...♘d7 14. ♘c6 ♗xc6 15. dxc6 ♘b6 16. ♖xe7!.

  FSR: "In build and coat and brush he was a huge timber-wolf; but the lie was given to his wolfhood by his color and marking. There the dog unmistakably advertised itself. No wolf was ever colored like him. He was brown, deep brown, red-brown, an orgy of browns." Jack London, Brown Wolf http://www.classicreader.com/book/8...

  thegoodanarchist: As for the pun, it makes me wonder if this was a blitz game.

I see no indication that it was.

Jul-22-18  Granny O Doul: It's a short game, and a play on the typing exercise. A wolf is close enough to a fox.

  ChessHigherCat: How about "Wolff down"?
Jul-22-18  RookFile: The quick brown wolf jumped over the lazy dog.
Jul-22-18  Howard: This was Wolff's first US championship. He was seeded into it because he'd won the US Junior back in '84.

A short game is typically considered to be 20 moves or fewer. This isn't that short.

On top of that, a game that is considered "short" by the number of moves is not necessarily quick, which refers to rapidity of play.

Did the <orgy of browns> produce brown anchor babies?

Jul-22-18  Granny O Doul: <thegoodanarchist> For a decisive game between GM's (or GMs-to-be-in-the-near-future), 25 moves is indeed short.

As for the game's title, it isn't mine, so I won't go to the mat for it. But I had no trouble understanding it.

Well, it isn't difficult to understand. It just isn't quite appropriate IMO...

And personally I wouldnt say that a wolf is close enough to a fox.
