Chess, potpourri and nonsense!
The London Classic is going strong this week, both on the board and off. Witness the following excellent video that sees the particpants giving short descriptions of their adversaries…I agree with David Smerdon when he writes: ‘So entertaining! Honestly, I wish organisers did this sort of thing more often. They have such an opportunity with so many top players gathered in one place, basically at their command, and yet the organisers always seem to end up choosing something bizarre for the GMs like tree-planting or wearing funny hats. But this is what we really want to see!’
