Oct-28-04  Knight13: Super Knight Moves! The last move is checkmated. Not a check.

Good game!!!!

Oct-28-04  Spassky69: What the hell Short?? You hate Tal so much you won't resign?? Or is it he was in time trouble or a blitz game?!
Oct-28-04  ConLaMismaMano: I think it was a 5 minute game.
Oct-28-04  yoozum: definitely a blitz game. i don't see nigel making quite so many obvious blunders (like getting forked) under classical time controls.
Oct-28-04  molinov: <yoozum> No, under classical time controls he just hands you the rook without you having to fork him.
Oct-28-04  yoozum: lol yeah, good point molinov. i wonder if krasenkow actually enjoyed that victory...
Oct-28-04  Spassky69: I think Tal missed a skewer too.
Oct-29-04  yoozum: haha. i just realized... Short vs. Tall.

i crack myself up.

Oct-30-04  fgh: Mikhail Tal beat Nigel Short 2 to 1, with 9 draws.
Jan-03-06  babakova: <yoozum> hehe.. yeah its a pretty good pun.
Jun-26-08  sandmanbrig: wow, a lot of knight moves
