Oct-02-04  Dick Brain: The is a game that ended with a cliche of the cinema: "check" followed by the opponent immediately replying "check and mate".
Oct-02-04  azaris: Did he pull a Nigel or was this a clever way of resigning?

May-14-09  WhiteRook48: 53. Nc5+??? White should have played 54 Kd3
Jan-02-12  Tigranny: You bet WhiteRook48. Did Short think he could set up some stalemate plan or something?
