I thought it was a very interesting game and that Dominic Lawson did very well. His ECF grade is about the same as mine (in fact ten lower at the moment) and I'd be delighted if I managed to give Kasparov such a good fight in a one-on-one game.
Also, don't forget that they were doing an interview at the same time.
I didn't know that Steve "Interesting" Davis played chess, but glad to hear that having that experience, he, unlike some of his colleague snooker commentators, debunks the gaffe that snooker is "chess on the green baize".
Don't get me wrong, I like watching snooker almost as much as I like playing chess, but the two sports are really quite unalike. Not as
unalike as chess and footie, perhaps, but still.
