    Hmm...find an anagram for Nigel David Short.

    Hint: 4 words and it describes the man himself.

    And for "A Nerd Shot Wimps"

    Hint: 4 words and it pertains to this site.

    Wow, this is a fun site!
    http://www.anagramgenius.com/server.html

    And this one too:
    http://wordsmith.org/anagram/

    There must be billions of anagrams out there...

    Anagrams = ars magna = the great art. (You may read about it in Word Freak...a book about the Scrabble subculture.)

    Chess Players:
    Anatoli Karpov: Pivotal anorak.
    Alexei Shirov: Hi, I've oral sex!
    Gary Kasprarov: Gray as Karpov.
    Vishy Anand: Vain and shy.
    Nigel Short: Honest girl? (also English Rot and Loser Thing)
    Raymond Keene: Meek, randy one.
    Boris Gelfand: Boring, sad elf.

    US grandmaster Robert James Fischer: Surrender after major chess gambits.

    Anatoly Karpov, the Russian world chess champion: 'Rash position... shall move stray pawn around... check!' and 'Dynamic phase shocks our rival - lost another pawn!'

    Russian chess champion: "Censorship as inasmuch"

    President Bush of the USA: 'A fresh one, but he's stupid.'

    United States of America: 'Dine out, taste a Mac, fries.'


    I love the King's Gambit! > "Thieving, bat-like smog."

    "He's the observant, speedier twit." > Red Hot Pawn is the best site ever!

    "Red Hot Pawn: compare with gameknot." > Dog-cheap wreak omnipotent warmth.

    "Sharp-nosedly concise creep." > I play correspondence chess.

    "I have way too much time on my hands." > 'Yo-ho-ho! Madman's witty, humane vice.'
