VIdeo after Game 2, World Championship Match

Great video here and I love GM Nigel Short's in his interviews. Always interesting and entertaining comments from the English grandmaster.

"It seems computers dont have anything to do with their lives" - Anand at 2:17

"Objectively chess is a draw from move one why bother to continue" - Nigel Short at 5:06

Ulf Andersson nice humble guy, felt honored to be playing against him. Unfortunately I was quite a weak player at that time, did not put up a good fight.

I don't think Fischer would have agreed with Short. He said:

The turning point in my career came with the realization that Black should play to win instead of just steering for equality.

Those were different times. With computers nowadays, trying to win with Black will backfire.
