Jul-27-11  rogl: Nice finishing blow found by Short with 68...f3!. The point of this move is to take away f3 as an escape square for the white king as seen in the variation 69.gxf3 ♕b2+ 70.♔d3 ♕c3+ 71.♔e4 ♕d4#

  Everett: 6..h5 and 7.Nd7 black is saving the when and where of his queen's bishop for a later moment.

I wonder if White's 25th is best. After the exchange on e6, he has a tough position to play.

  perfidious: It's hardly surprising that White came to grief at b2, the Achilles Heel of his position, once he played for a central breakthrough with d5.

The lack of a dark-squared bishop told in the end.

Jul-29-11  puzzlepatzer: this is a great example of attacking with oppo bishops + queens.
Aug-01-11  nolanryan: thanks for comment rogl, was trying to figure out f3 deal
Aug-02-11  waustad: Short is having fun with opposite colored bishops in this tourney, though he'd spell it with a 'u'.
