You all know Kasparov’s joke?
So I came upon my pal David the other day. He was playing chess with a dog. I commented on what a smart dog that must be. David said “He’s not so smart. I’m winning 3 games to 1…”
It’s more of a practice tournament really. Hundreds of blitz games is not ideal for a big international chess tournament!
This is an individual tournament and open to all players, and FIDE (International Chess Federation) rules and regulations shall apply.
