    yes, the game is interesting in itself, Short blunders a piece and just by sheer luck gets
    it back and eventually has a winning position. Yes the format is excellent, every time i
    play chess i have Spasskys voice in my head, 'i must find a plan, yes bavo, i like my
    position very much' or the more usual, 'oh, its very unpleasant for me, i am feeling
    pessimistic about my position, very unpleasant!' Its just great to listen to the masters
    comment on their own games, i liked Lothar Schmid the German master, he used to
    tell stories about what he was doing that morning and how it influenced his opening
    choice.
