Dec-06-07  pawnofdoom: Can anyone veryfy if the first few games of this guy (the 1974 ones) are supposed to be for J Short? Both played at that tournament.

  HeMateMe: Do the players refer to him as "Short, the shorter"?
Jul-09-13  Zonszein: His game against Baburin was very nice
Premium Chessgames Member
  Domdaniel: Philip Short was joint 1st in the 2015 Irish Championship -- 34 years after his first victory in 1981, and 27 years since his last win in 1988.

  perfidious: Better late'n never for a return to the winners' circle.

  Domdaniel: <perf> Now it's your turn... maybe not the US Champs, but you could head down to Florida and demolish a certain Luff Meister...
Premium Chessgames Member
  Domdaniel: Short adds another Irish Championship to his collection, with 7/9 in Ennis 2017 (shared with Alex Lopez). Philip's run included 5 wins in a row against Baburin, Lopez, Daly, et al.
