    Sergey Klimentiev a regular 1700 player suddenly started beating IM's
    at the Botvinnik Memorial Open.

    "players and organisers claim that after a game Klimentiev is unable to show or
    recall the moves he has played. Apparently he did not even know the names of
    the openings he played..."

    So they took away his pen and briefcase (beware of the briefcase carrying chess player)
    and moved him onto the stage so they could keep an eye on him.
    He lost his last three games.

    DB go into great detail (with pictures) how you can use a computer to do
    a Blunder Check to see if a suspect is at it.

    I'm not up on all the details of Blunder Checking, perhaps one of the lads
    could explain how this differs from match ups before some of the boys on
    here try it, screw it up and flood the MODS with FTP's.

    When I got married in 1996, my wife bought me a Cross Pen, with "N2 Chess" engraved on it to use in tournaments.

    My OTB rating dropped some 250 points in the 18 months after our nuptials.

    All this time I thought getting married messed up my game, and now I learn that I just got the wrong pen.

    It's your wife's fault.

    She bought you the pen but no briefcase.

    You must have the briefcase to go with the pen.

    I'm not making this up- my mother-in-law gave me a briefcase for my first post-marriage birthday.

    Wrong briefcase...

    In 1996 the technology wasn't that great: the briefcase was necessary to carry the batteries!!

    But nothing in the article about what his breifcase and pen were doing for him??? Surely they must have checked it for electronics or something???
