  perfidious: Black is bound hand and foot here- next comes Nc5 and Ne6 (+) with devastation to follow.
Dec-12-05  mr. nice guy: <perfidious> Instead of 31.Nc5 white will play 31.Nd6 and it's all overrrrr!

  ToTheDeath: Anyone else appreciate the subtle trap behind allowing the natural looking 23...Qxe4?

Nice game.

Apr-02-08  Shams: <ToTheDeath> the trap isn't too subtle, but he did have to spot it before 19.Ne4 and that's nothing to sneeze at.

  IMlday: Hellers later improved for Black with 9..Nxe4!
Premium Chessgames Member
  ToTheDeath: Indeed, that equalizes on the spot.

Short vs F Hellers, 1986.
Your score: 49 (par = 33)


PS. <ToTheDeath> During G-t-M, I most definitely spotted White's mating attack had Black gone in for 23...Qxe4.
