Today's chess quote
Australia. Population 22.5 million.
Chess is like an underground activity back home, said Ian Rogers, Australia’s first Grandmaster. “It is not just invisible, it is disliked by administrators even though there is a huge interest, especially among children. For the first time since 1972, this world championship match is getting no regular coverage in the Australian media.”
