Today’s Vintage Chess Humor
It is against the regulations of tournament chess to receive any ‘outside’ help during a game, but that does not seem to apply to ‘spiritual’ help.
After tieing for 1st place in the US Chess Championship of 1973, John Grefe (1947 – 2013) attributed his success to Guru Maharaj Ji’s inspiration. Infact, in several interviews that were published in the press, Grefe alluded to the Guru’s direct intervention during the games!
Another player who regulary admits to getting spiritual help during his games is Wesley So.
