Thx for sharing this game with us.
The game is remarkable, because a few years back Short claimed to have 'refuted' the TK! (with 8.Qf3).
Apparently things are not so simple.
In the game itself 15.Bf3 is clearly a mistake.
Better is 15.b4 when Black has two good answers providing adequate compensation:
15.b4, Bf5 (Garnelis - Lund<2400+>, 2009;)
15.b4, Nc4 (l'Ami-Stellwagen, 2010; both players GM)
