Nigel David Short MBE (born 1 June 1965) is an English chess grandmaster, chess columnist, chess coach and chess commentator. Short earned the Grandmaster title at the age of 19, and was ranked third in the world by FIDE from January 1988 to July 1989. In 1993 he became the first English player to play a World Chess Championship match, when he qualified to play Garry Kasparov in the World Chess Championship 1993 in London (Kasparov won, 12.5 to 7.5). As of March 2017, he is the oldest player ranked among FIDE’s top 100 players and is ranked #55.

According to Short and Kasparov, the head of the chess world’s governing body FIDE, Florencio Campomanes, in breach of FIDE rules, decided the location of the match (Manchester) and the prize fund without consulting them. In her book Nigel Short: Quest for the Crown (Cadogan 1993), the British WIM and author Cathy Forbes wrote that at no time in the 1993 bidding process did FIDE actually receive a conforming world championship match bid. In response, Short and Kasparov promptly formed a rival organisation, the Professional Chess Association. The resulting match—sponsored by The Times newspaper—was held under the new body’s auspices in London from September to October 1993. Kasparov won convincingly (+6−1=13) – the largest margin of victory in a world title contest since Botvinnik defeated Tal in 1961. Short’s play was criticised by BBC commentators Bill Hartston and Tony Miles.

    Bishop to H6 is a nice idea for white.
    If clack captures then knight F6 is coming, winning one of the rooks

  • In that position neither the pawn on C7 or whites pawn on d4 are passed pawns because of each other and there are only 7 passed pawns. Capturing the c7 pawn creates ab eighth passed pawn. 😄

  • 9:13 after kh8 and rg6, black can play qb1 and after white plays rh6 check, black can block with queen and then captures captures and black is up a knight and a bishop and one fast past pawn

  • Always thought he was saying fast pawn. I don’t play a lot but watch almost all his videos.

  • the dreaded "doosie" move

    insta-flex * June 20, 2020 11:16 am Reply
  • The "obvious" Pa2 move is actually the worst move possible. It is potential mate in 3 and guaranteed mate in 4 for white. After Pa2 white plays Pg5.
    At this point if black queens their pawn with Pa1 then white mates in 2 with Pg6 check. Only legal move for black is Kh5. Then Rh8 by white is mate. Only counter play is bishop captures pawn on g5, then white captures bishop with Pg5 and its still mate in 2. Other variation is bishop to f6 to cover Rh8 and tempt the pawn to capture but king simply captures bishop then it is still mate in 2.

  • strange game !!!

    patrick kever June 20, 2020 11:16 am Reply
  • At 6:27 why not king h6 or g6 (h6 is better as the knight can't check the king) followed by rook d8 checkmate?? (You have to block with the bishop and rook captures bishopis mate) ?? 🙄🙄 Did short miss it by any chance?? I don't see any defence against the checkmate 🤔🤔

  • 6:40 Don't know how you'd considered doubled pawns in terms of passed pawns, but the argument was unnecessary. Black's pawn on c7 was still opposed by white's pawn on d4, so it is not a passed pawn, regardless.

  • 2:24 why not just castle instead of moving the rook over?

  • I agree, 8 passed pawns. You shouldn't define something by what it could develop into.

    Time Warp June 20, 2020 11:16 am Reply
  • In the position where he stated that RG8 is the only helpful move, which only leads to a draw, g5 could've won the game for White. White could've won instead of drawing.

  • 5:50 Gelfand didn’t play Be7 pinning the rook. Easy to see why. Trading his bishop would have left the rook alone vs 4 (!) passed pawns & rook, as the knight is quite out of play. So he got a passed pawn himself (by Bxa3) in order to achieve some counterplay while keeping a strong defensive tool.
    Sometimes strategy helps in making good decisions… and you don’t even have to count the whole tree!!!
    I guess he moved very fast….

    roberto collo June 20, 2020 11:16 am Reply
  • Looks to me like seven passed pawns until Rxc7, which then makes it eight passed pawns. Black's c7 pawn and white's d4 pawn are not passed pawns until Rxc7.

  • its a game of seven passed pawns because if Gelfand's 1 c pawn isn't a passed pawn then Short's d pawn can't be a passed pawn

    Justin Raal June 20, 2020 11:16 am Reply
  • Until the black c7 pawn was captured there were only 7 passed pawns because white’s d-pawn still needed to pass the c7 pawn. So first there were 7 and then 8 passed pawns.

    GreenMeansGO June 20, 2020 11:16 am Reply
  • the c7 pawn is not passed at all even if no other c-pawn. White has a d-pawn.

    Natasha Paige Cortez June 20, 2020 11:16 am Reply
  • did he miss it or did he calculate the perpetual? Maybe short didn't want the draw and thought he could still win with rg8.

  • That fortress surrounding the king at the end is so cool. It's like an old Japanese movie when one solo samurai is surrounded by a bunch of enemies and the camera just holds there for a second.

  • The c7 pawn is certainly not a passed pawn because of the pawn on b4. similarly, b4 is not a passed pawn because of c7.

  • If he played a2
    White can play g5
    If black makes queen
    It’s g6 check
    Only move for king is h6 but rook h 8 is mate
