Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-07-06  Chess Lou Zer: An interesting game. I thought that keeping black's f pawn on f4 for so long proved to be the difference.
May-06-09  returnoftheking: According to Timman there are some small tactics that Short oversees in this game. He makes up for it by superbly using the bishop pair.

21.f3 h6! (point being Bxh6 g5 h4 e4! followed by Ne5)

26.Bh4 Kf7! (with Bxf5? Bc7!)

Again, according to Timman 39..f4 is the losing move.

<Judit Polgar beat Nigel Short 12 to 3, with 5 draws> Disastrous score. Both usually tactical players, maybe playing it safe like this game is better for Short.

<Short declined an early draw offer but Polgar stayed close to equality for most of the game. "But it never was equal", stresses Short, who finally squeezed the full point from a favourable endgame. "And you know what? This was especially sweet because of my terrible score against her: I have 13 losses against Judit, which is quite unusual between players of approximately the same rating.">
