"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 brie tch 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.
