Nigel Short successfully defeated Ivan Cheparinov in their scheduled rematch today at the Corus Chess Tournament. This match was definitely the most talked about so far in the Corus Tournament, not because of the chess played but the media coverage of the initial incident where Cheparinov refused to shake the hand of Short.
It has been an interesting story to follow, and I am glad that it was settled over the board, which is how it should be. Both players shook hands at the beginning and at the end of the match.
Here is the PGN of the game played between the two today:
