Short persisted with the Worral Attack and despite Karpov's expertise on the black side of the Ruy Lopez and his deviation from their last outing, Short simply outplayed him in the opening. Short took just one minute over the hour to complete what is perhaps the most important victory of his career. more > Diversions 610 Bridge 616 Knitting Reviews Your Money A-Z Index
