  Jonathan Sarfati: A very impressive game by Short, one of the best at that Olympiad. Note his 15. c4, which might superficially be regarded as opening lines on the side he is castled. But if Black takes e.p., then there is only one file opened, and it's blocked by the easily defended ♙b2. If White had omitted this move, Black would have been able to open more lines with a4 and b3, attacking the ♙s on both a2 and c2. With c4, that ♙ moves out of range.

Even though the ♙ was lost later, Black could not open up White's ♔ enough, and it was White who ended up using the line.

Black resigns because of 38... fxe6 39. ♖f1+ ♖f7 40. ♕g7+!

May-15-08  mirzafuadi: I think 37. Qg7 threatening the Rook directly also wins, because if 37...Rxg7 then 38. hxg7, Black can not stop the promotion
