"It will be Short, and it will be short..." were the famous words of Kasparov when asked who he predicted would challenge his throne in the 1992-93 World Championship Match. He was right on both accounts! What was the "Short" version of the story (pun intended)? Well, even an obscure line of the Poisoned Pawn Najdorf couldn't throw Kaspy off his game. Enjoy the tricky exchange sacrifice, and feel Short's pain for not taking the repetition when he had a chance.
