Kasparov Vs Short – Blitz Chess Game 7

Chess Super-Grandmasters and longtime rivals Gary Kasparov and Nigel Short engage in an exciting high level exhibition match of Blitz Chess. This is the 7th of the 8 game series that took place at Belgium in October of 2011. It was 18 years ago that they battled it out for the World Chess Championship. Commentary by Grandmaster Genna Sosonko.

Thanks to my dear friend LuxusOhr for making and gifting me this video. I await your return, brother.


  1. I don't understand why they both didn't take a shit before the game, it's pretty obvious they need to go

  2. Yes it's not a best of 7, they're still tied 3.5 & 3.5 points each

  3. (Short won on time) if you didn't catch my drift.

  4. I've missed your uploads, they're always great 🙂

  5. thanks man. i've missed your great comments 😉

  6. Good to see you posting again Noir. Your contributions have been missed.

  7. Excellent footage , any particular reason for renaming yourself or did you just fancy a change (a 50% change at that) .

  8. youtube asked me if i want to use the name this was signed under and i said, "uhhhh… ok." but yeah, at least a 50% change in what's going on w me for sure

  9. My god, how uncomfortable are these chairs? It's hard enough to pay attention with the thickly accented voice-over much less them adjusting in their chairs every 10 seconds.

  10. So it seems as though they added an exciting new variable to this exhibition match…Steaming Hot Chairs. I like it!

  11. To be beaten by the worst opening.
    Must be tough.

  12. I think hemorrhoid is the worst enemy of chess players. It is evident they both are suffering from it in this game.

  13. No opening, Short acting the fool as usual.

  14. it's the st george defence surely, not the polish?

  15. No… The Grob Opening or Attack is actually with white declaring it with 1. g4.

  16. St. George Defence is actually 1.e4 a6. Famous because of GM Tony Miles.

  17. surely it's a transpostion, after e4 a6 the main line is d4 b5 but there must be a sideline Nf3 b5

  18. Your right, it's a transposition to a St. George Defense variation. 🙂

  19. The end wasn't clear to me. The board and the video aren't sync? Now did black win, and did white resign? They're moving the pieces back to original position, but the overlay board is still moving. This is confusing.

  20. Polish opening is 1. b4
    Polish defense is 1. d4 b5
    Grob's attack starts with 1. g4

  21. This opening is well known as the Miles-Defence.

  22. scroll down a bit to the 'video responses' and you'll see the next and final game, which decides the match

  23. And now he is.. he is also not only short.. but also short on time. LOL.

  24. For me its:

    1. Mikhail Tal
    2. Bobby Fischer
    3. Kasparov
    4. Petrosian
    5. Paul Morphy
    6. Magnus Carlsen
    7. Lasker
    8. Jose Raul Capablanca

    Very hard to decide tho, i like them all with their respective styles

  25. Nigel Short won this game but Kasparov won the match

  26. Se o Kasparov tivesse capturado o Pião com o Bispo, acho que ele tinha dado o Mate.

  27. what is Kasparov waiting for, for Nigel to change his diaper, just play f3 and g4 and get the king

  28. The commentator is the best ever! Love it!

  29. and moving around suppose to help you play better!

  30. cant they sit still? its so annoying when they move all the time

  31. not really, as a young player Fischer was coached by strong players
