The Best Instructional Chess Video Ever Made!

Dear friends,

If you have enjoyed the material that I have produced here on chess.com over the years, please check out the following video.

This video is single handedly the main inspiration for a lot of my topics, and it is arguably the best instructional chess video ever made.  It features the legendary World Championship match of Garry Kasparov vs. Nigel Short in the early 90s.

Hope you enjoy!

All the best,

    I believe that Short lost the first game on time and not in the manner depicted here.

    I actually found this today from somewhere else. I did have a friend in my old high school chess club who seemed to play in a similar manner.


    Hilarious video, without a doubt. The one part I cannot stop laughing at, though, happens at roughly 90 seconds in. I won't spoil the surprise. =)

    I'm familiar with the technique at the end but haven't employed it yet.

    Why do I get the feeling there is a Sicilian involved in this video? I'll go check it out.
