  Plaskett: See a fifteen year old Shortīs victory Vs Miles in the final of the BBC Master Game tournament of 1980 (after which Miles ran off to the toilet in tears) and his game with Chandler from the last round of the 1984 British Championships (which was drawn) for similarly effective gaining of space on the kingside. Each game was a Sicilian with 3 Bb5+. This treatment of the Caro-Kann really does seem to be an idea exclusively of Shortīs. He appreciated that, although the bishop at f5 is outside the pawn chain, white still has the spatial plus. From the position after blackīs 18th, few people would have thought that a player of World class such as Seirawan could have been systematically rolled up by direct attack. Short has also put Lyubo to sleep in such manner and drew a quite astonishing game with Timman in Prague from the same opening.
