QVELLING ONCE AGAIN

In 1988, the great World Chess Champion, Gary Kasparov, played a simultaneous exhibition in New York against six high rated junior American players, one of whom was my twenty year old son, Patrick. In what has become a rather famous game, Patrick, playing Black, won. It was, I believe, the shortest game Kasparov ever lost [short in moves, not in time]. A videotape was made of the event, complete with interviews and commentary, and in three portions, was posted on YouTube. If you have any interest in chess, it is worth a look. Patrick is the young man in the dramatic white hat.
