Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-16-06  russep: Kasparov totally outplays Short
Jun-16-06  SniperOnG7: I reckon the fianchetto of the Queenside Bishop was quite smart. It put a lot of pressure down the entire diagonal!
Sep-27-06  aazqua: Ouch. I can't think of a more uneven ending for bishops v knights
Nov-09-07  HOTDOG: 35.Ba3 is stronger,Black has no way to save the Nb4
Nov-09-07  pacelli: God knows what possessed a positionally subtle player like Short to play the Sicilian. Against Kasparov of all players! Probably Short was so impressed by Kasparov's handling of the black side Sicilian in their match the previous year and dreamed of playing the same way.
