Spectacle in Bunratty!
Just kidding! Congratulations to 54 year old Nigel Short for delivering a spectacular checkmate to 76-year old Vlastimil Hort in round 3 of the tradtional Bunratty tournament in Ireland!
It is always a pleasure to watch these two gentlemen play, each a legend in their own ways, and this game today between them did not disappoint their fans. Bravo! No doubt Hort will very quickly forget this game…
But first, a moment of reflection:
Now let’s see the damn game!
