More TV Chess

The clip's description sets the scene at the beginning of game three for the London Docklands Trophy:-

Nigel desperately needs a win after losing the first two games to the World Champion. Very original play by both players. Kasparov unusually plays the Reti and Short answers with the Chigorin Defense. Live commentary by Grandmaster Ray Keene.

The show used a different presentation style than that seen on the series I last covered in BBC: The Master Game 1981.

Kasparov vs Short - Speed Chess Challenge (Part 1) (12:28) • 'Live at the Hippodrome, 1987.'
