Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-02-02  bishop: Short plays a little bit too provacatively.
Dec-20-04  mack: No he doesn't, he plays completely under-provocatively and Kasparov just sacrifices right up his arse.
May-10-05  Catfriend: Actually such stuff with sacs on h7 and following disaster is by no means a masterpiece. Short <does> play provocatively, leaving his kingside so open to such standart attacks.
