Oct-29-05  soberknight: How does White continue after 76...Bf4?
Oct-29-05  Petrocephalon: White pushes the Black king to a8 by the following procedure: 76..Bf4 77.Rf7 B~ 78.Bc6+ Kd8 79.Rd7+ Kc8 (..Ke8 would lose a piece) 80.Bb7+ Kb8 81.Ba6.
Dec-18-06  aragorn69: Huge win by Short! Sacrificing his two last pawns to win a R+B vs. N+B ending shows the level he had reached (or had to reach) to beat Karpov.
Dec-18-06  aragorn69: BTW were 28.-Nfxd4 and/or 29.-Rxd4 mistakes ? or did Karpor err at a later stage (40.-Nd4 / 41.-Qh5) ?
Dec-18-06  sheaf: 76..Bf4 77.Bc6 threat of a discovered check and winning material and notice that black can not avoid it since Kf8 loses to Rf7+.
Oct-22-14  Ke2: 1... c6 is kind of a joking move, asking Short, what do you want, Slav or Caro?
Dec-15-17  WhiteRook48: I don't think I've seen Short play 1. d4 before.

Nigel Short appears to have experimented with 1.d4 in two serious games with Karpov - this one and this one... Short vs Karpov, 1997

  Plaskett: At either move 35 or 36 Karpov could have drawn trivially by just taking on f3.
Jun-27-23  Lloyd Gross: 45 Rxf7+ is better than the queen trade off.
