  Phony Benoni: Interesting game. The position after 25...fxg3 is worth a look.
Apr-28-08  Poisonpawns: Here is Nigel Short in his "prime" years,showing what a monster he is in the middlegame.Predrag wasted some time with the early d5.Nigel developed "around" it and destroyed him.Although easy to spot 31..Rxe6! freeing the bishop for c6 was sweet.
Apr-28-08  gandu: Why didn't White play 22 Nxc7?
Apr-28-08  gandu: ...and what about 35. f4? A massive blunder! It looks to me that Pedrag self-destroyed, more than being destroyed by Short.
Feb-19-15  Everett: And example of how the minor pieces in the Classical Dutch can morph into KID-type action.
