The World Slapping Championship!
A Tiebreak Idea for Chess!?
What fun if Carlsen and Caruana had to break their 6-6 tie this way! I did not even know that this sport existed! Typically Russian, it probably works better with a shot or two of Vodka thrown in…now how about trying to incorporate this into how chess decides tiebreaks? It might drastically cut down the number of draws!
What a great concept! Did you notice that in the first video, after delivering a slap, the player had to punch his clock (just like in chess!)?
Now imagine how much more interesting would be the World Chess Championship if both players knew that the tiebreak would be ‘physical’! Perhaps it might even encourage to players to try a bit harder…
