Nigel Short at 49
« on: June 01, 2014, 06:03:08 pm »
It's Nigel Short's birthday today and he's 49. I thought he was 50 today until I checked. He's still the oldest player in the World Top 100, coming in at no. 79. I remember him when he was 10.

There will be dancing on the streets of Reykjavik.

I looked at the World Top 100 list today and catastrophe! "Nosher" is no longer in there! His Wikipedia entry says he was in the World Top 100 in June 2014 but he's not in the October list. The oldest I can find is a Peruvian I've never heard of, born 1967.

Of the Englishmen I've found in the recent lists, I have a score of 1/3 against them. Sadly, at the time of me playing them their combined ages were 27.
