  Honza Cervenka: 28.Nf5!! is a fantastic shot. If 28...Nxg4, then 29.Rxd8#, if 28...exf5, then 29.Rxd8+ Ke7 30.Qd4 and if 28...Rxd1, then 29.Qxg7+ etc.

  matey: What's wrong with 26...exd5??
Premium Chessgames Member
  Honza Cervenka: I has to admit that I don't know. The idea of 26.Rxd5 was certainly 26...exd5 27.Nf5 with strong attack, but after 27...g6 I don't see any convincing continuation for white. (I looked on 27.Qf5 too, but after simple 27...Kg8 black seems to be o.k.) On the other hand the position after 26...exd5 27.Nf5 looks very unpleasant for black and I don't wonder that Bareev played rather 26...Rd8 with idea 27...Nxe5. Short's 28.Nf5 was an ugly surpise for him.
