Chess, potpourri and nonsense
“I wore black because I liked it. I still do…It’s still my symbol of rebellion- against a stagnant status quo, against our hypocritical houses of God, against people whose minds are closed to others’ ideas.”
― Johnny Cash
MEANWHILE, BACK IN
London, Dec 10, 2015:
Only 1 Berlin defence today!!
Seems like the organizers must have had a word with the players…out of the first 25 games played (5-rounds), a total of 10 Berlins were played. All of these games, NATURALLY, ended in draws. The Berlin is a well-known drawing weapon, proven to be able to put spectators (and opponents) in a deep sleep, often requiring medical attention to resuscitate!
(Scene from the 5th round of the London Classic, that saw a record breaking 3-Berlins!)
The Berlin is also thought to chase away journalists and sponsors, and is responsible for a good many newspapers refusing to cover chess events anymore. (It is even rumoured that the Berlin was thought to start World War II)
