|Apr-11-07|| ||Richard Taylor: After 22 ... Be6 Black seems ok to me looking at it quickly.|
|Apr-11-07|| ||bumpmobile: Did anyone else notice that there have been 6 Nigel Short Games of the Day in the last year and he won all but this one. Could this be cg.com's passive aggressive way of condemning Mr. Short's comment, "People pay me good money to listen to my advice on chess. I do not see why I should freely dispense this accumulated knowledge on some website, just because someone asks me," from the other day? Nigel Short|
|Apr-11-07|| ||xenophon: was there actually a tournament played on the Isle of Lewis?|
|Apr-11-07|| ||Maxwell843: why did Nigel Short play 23...Bxg4?|

Perhaps the official motto of this website should be "In G.O.D. we trust" ;-)
|Apr-11-07|| ||JohnBoy: <Max> - 23...Bxg4 is a clever way to try to get out of a horrid mess. Short does several things with it. Temporarily protects h5 (preventing Rh5 for just a moment) and clearing c8 for the second rook.|
|Apr-11-07|| ||artemis: bumpmobile: I highly doubt it. Short's decision is not only supportable but the most honest way to do it. Chess gives him his living. I offer my full opinion on everything (well unless it isnt personal) because I am not going to make my living in that manner. Imagine the goldmine everyone would have by having a GM giving advice for free. Short's primary source of income is chess (thus chess professional). If memory serves, he does occasionally offer some advice, or comment on a game. On that page someone made the comparison between nigel short coming here and some retired baseball player showing up to the baseball hall of fame and not giving advice. This was a bad comparison simply because first of all short is not retired, and secondly he makes a living out of playing chess and giving his advice on chess, whereas baseball players only need to play baseball for maybe 4 years, get millions of dollars then retire, chess players are not so lucky.|
I dont think Chessgames.com will do anything to alienate any grand master from this website.
|Apr-11-07|| ||dbquintillion: <artemis>. Agreed. Furthermore, its slightly ludicrous to suggest that cg.com would "punish" Short by making on of his losses a Game of the Day. And from what little I know of Short, he is not thin-skinned enough to be affected by that sort of thing and indeed would probably be quite amused if he thought that was the intent.|
|Apr-11-07|| ||fm avari viraf: At one stage, it looked Black had a crushing attack & White would surrender. But hats off to Agdestein for coolly defended his position with some resourceful skills where Short found he was short of moves.|

Black wins the queen-at the loss of two rooks-lol

Yes, Polgar played among others. It was to celebrate the centenary of the discovery of the Isle of Lewis chessmen or some such.
