    Why don't these videos that are categorized under "Amazing Games" showing up when I select "All Categories"?? Dubious and suspicious. Undecided The only one that shows up is Sam's #9.

    I'm still not convinced that Kasparov ever predicted that Short would be the challenger in '93; the only evidence I've seen indicates Kasparov made the comment ("it will be Short, and it will be short") after Short won the Candidates Matches.  The story is good for a quick laugh, but did Kasparov really make that claim "before the Candidates Matches  started," as GM Shankland states early on?  And again, while Short was definitely crushed in the WC match, 20 games is not short, especially by today's standards.

    That aside, I join the others who thank GM Shankland for this video lesson.

    Exellent video. The presentation was very sharp, entertaining, well prepared and informative. I'm enjoying this Garry Kasparov series very much. Keep up the good work.

    I think "This is Sam Shankland, signing off." was a big innovation.

    Fantastic game. Kasparov's Queen was rather inactive for much of the game stuck on a3, interesting how he managed to hold white down in spite of keeping his own King in the center... A delightful game to watch, really. Thanks, Mr. Shankland!

    I wonder if Kasparov actually PREdicted that Short would win the Candidates' Matches in his "It will be Short" quote.  Or did he just say it AFTER Short won the CMs?

    Does someone have an exact citation (when/where) for the "it will be Short" quote?  I thought he said that AFTER Short won the Candidates Matches to qualify for the '93 WC.  If so, the first part of the quote isn't really a prediction.  Also, while Kasparov certainly dominated the match (+6 -1 =13, so 12.5-7.5), I don't really know if a 20-game match (out of the maximum 24) can be called short, given that the maximum number of games for recent WC matches have been set at 12.  I suppose Kasparov's "prediction" would also be "correct" if he had lost 13 games in a row to Short.

    Yikes, Shankland refers to Short as "a fair player, I guess."  ?!?!  Dude was challenging for the WC against the greatest player of all time!
