  Honza Cervenka: The position after move 24 is quite picturesque - all black pieces with exception of the King on b6 are sitting on the back rank and especially both Rooks are well burried. Of course, final position is a mate and so last move of white should be marked with "#" instead of "+".
Jun-06-06  neosystems: 45. -exd is just stupid. Instead I think 45. -Rxc4 is better, which might lead to 46. Qxc4 whereupon black can contine playing without any immediate threats.

  Honza Cervenka: <neosystems: 45. -exd is just stupid. Instead I think 45. -Rxc4 is better, which might lead to 46. Qxc4 whereupon black can contine playing without any immediate threats.> No, 45....Rxc4 46.Qxc4 is clearly lost for black. If 46...Bxd5, then 47.fxe6+ Bxe6 (47...fxe6 48.Qxd5+ as the Pawn e6 is pinned) 48.Qd5+ and the game is over.
Apr-18-13  Everett: I do not understand 17..a5 at all. Why make your b-pawn backward? Short had everything nice and closed on that side of the board... don't get it. Opening lines on the K-side by preparing the push of f- and/or g-pawns seems more sensible.
