This is personally my favourite chess game. In this game between GMs Short and Timman, White utilises a technique seldom seen in other games. This game was included in the revised edition of the World's Greatest Chess Games by Nunn, Emms and Burgess.

Here is the game in plain PGN format:

To purchase products, I recommend Wholesale Chess. They provide the highest quality chess products at the lowest prices (especially for US and Canadian players). They even offer to match prices with other chess websites! Even though I live overseas, this is where I choose to purchase chess goods.

For chess opening training and repertoire maintenance, I highly recommend the software I use, Chess Openings Wizard. This software was approved by Grandmaster Peter Svidler (FIDE rating 2744 as of January 2010) many years ago.
