Tarnishield works very well; maybe too well? It takes off the tarnish pretty easily, leaving the silver looking great - however, remember that every time you do this, you're removing some silver.

Recently, "Simichrome Polish" was recommended to me - I like it a lot. Cleans well, and seems to hove some lasting protectiveness to it. Made in Germany, should be available in Europe as well.

To extend the time between polishings-keeping the shine lasting longer, get yourself a soft "microfiber" cloth and use it after you play.
