Sep-03-06  who: see Topalov vs Kasparov, 1996 and the kibbitzing there.
Dec-05-08  Abdooss: Short found the novelty 12..d5! prior to his 1993 World Championship Match against Kasparov. He dared not play it as White, as he feared Kasparov's legendary & fearsome preparation. Alas! Kasparov's Novelties were great but he is still Human.
Oct-15-09  luzhin: Dared not play 12...d5 as White? How could he?
Jul-30-10  shalgo: <Short found the novelty 12..d5! prior to his 1993 World Championship Match against Kasparov.>

As we now know, Kavalek found (and played) this move in 1965. He told Short about it while helping him prepare for Short's 1993 match with Kasparov.
