Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-17-05  Poisonpawns: 15 moves of theory then Poor Nigel tries for a draw from moves 25-29 but Gata has none of it!Great endgame by Gata,this is probably Shorts best effort of the match even though he lost,he was just out classed.I like how Kamsky attacked the weak doubled pawns and when the time was rught transferred his attack to blacks queenside for a new advantage and took the point.
Nov-04-05  ericjohnlamano: Stunned after losing the first two match...Nigel Short plays to create severe imbalances using the Sicilian opening which is not prominent on his repertoire.His inexperienced in this opening is manifests when he crosses up different systems and soon finds himself with disadvantage
Nov-08-07  pacelli: I never understood why such a subtle positional player like Short would go a Sicilian with black. He's just not a tactical player to have any real success with it. With black a French or Ruy is much better for Short. He probably thought he could try the Sicilian with a kid like Kamsky. The lack of respect sure didn't help Short in this match.
