The best way to kill a chess player?
How NOT to kill a chess player
A gun has some drawbacks, apparently. I got a kick out of a news story today from the US where two chess players got into an argument over a move and one of them took out his gun and shot the other several times. (Where is an arbiter when you really need one?)
It is really hard to believe this story, or maybe I have been watching too much television. The victim was shot twice, once in the head and a second time in the abdomen.
Not only did this not kill the victim, but the victim was able to run away and get help!
That is one tough mother-fucker! (Probably a French Defence player…they never give up no matter how bad their position gets.)
