Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-29-06  Topzilla: Kasparov, the great Sicilian player, winning by a blunder of Short, anyway, nice game.
Jun-22-06  The Phantom: Short deserved much in this game, but what a blunder for christ sake, anyone know if this was blitz?

There could not be another logical explanation for such a blunder.

Aug-07-07  mkrk17: This is not blitz. Its the world championship match. By the way, blunders dont come from thin air. They come from extreme pressure, complications, tension, etc.

Aug-07-07  DaveyL: This is not a World Championship game. "Active" suggests it is a rapid game. Short did not lose a Fischer-Sozin in the 1993 World Championship - the game he lost with White to Kasparov in the WC was a Sicilian Najdorf Poisoned Pawn (game 4).
