Gibraltar Chess: Paehtz, Short Hold First Master Class
Both chose to show their games from that afternoon. Elisabeth very nearly beat elite grandmaster Pavel Eljanov (Ukraine); in the end the number 5 seed, here in Gibraltar for the first time, escaped with a draw.
Nigel's game also ended a draw, but he was understandably disappointed, since his position was clearly won at several points.
The next Master Class is scheduled for Thursday evening at 9pm with former Gibraltar Champion, third seeded player in this year’s tournament, Vassily Ivanchuk. Watch it on live streaming.
