This evening (22 November) starting at 6pm in the Central Library there will be a public spectacle. 30 of the strongest Chess players in the Wellington region face simultaneous execution at the hands of former World Championship Candidate, Nigel Short. This is an open invitation to attend this public display of our humiliation to anyone interested. No cost for admission and as I understand it the Mayor will be there along with TV1 News.Nigel Short has recently been the subject of a column over at the Guardian, where a keen amateur has been getting lessons from England's finest grandmaster. Needless to say that, despite the improvements in play the student made, he still got beaten in every game. Can't see things going too differently tonight, but, you never know...
