Jun-18-10  TheGadge: 24. Rxg6? Why this move? Surely 24.Nxf5 leads to a far stronger position. Is this the losing move?

  HeMateMe: There's nothing sadder than seeing a group of extra pawns slowly get munched on.
Jun-20-10  Blunderdome: Seems like Short saw that Rxg6 could give him 3-4 pawns for the bishop, but not that the resulting endgame was still worse.
