Who said adjournments were dead? The appeals commission at the 2007 World Youth Championships has re-invented them. Read all virtually it at ChessVibes.com [partly inwards Dutch merely the Belgian protestation is inwards English]. They decided it was OK to larn a 14-year-old man child out of his bed at 11pm, inquire him to give prove earlier them (I've got a pic of "when did you lot end encounter your father?" inwards my head) as well as and then oblige him to sit down downward and, at midnight the same night, hold a game which he had idea had been finished several hours earlier he went to bed.
Read the total facts at the ChessVibes site yesteryear all way merely to my heed the residue of the affair pales into insignificance likewise the aforementioned combat of lunacy. How could the appeals commission fifty-fifty retrieve to summon a modest from his bed inwards the showtime place? Well, basically because the appeals commission consisted of 'The Farce Brothers' (like the Marx Brothers, alone non equally funny) - Azmo, Campo as well as Makro Farce (to give them their phase names - inwards existent life they are Zurab Azmaiparashvili, Florencio Campomanes as well as Georgios Makropoulos... 3 of the most senior people inwards basis chess direction - to our collective shame).
Beggars belief, doesn't it? There are 3 things these cretins should produce immediately, inwards no item social club - resign; apologise profusely to the man child as well as to the Belgian Chess Federation; as well as (two of them) also apologise to Nigel Short. Why the latter? Because they late caused Nigel Short to endure reprimanded yesteryear FIDE for referring to them equally dunderheads. Since nosotros at nowadays accept cast-iron, irrefutable prove of the aptness of Mr Short's description, he should have a fulsome apology. Sumber http://johnchess.blogspot.com/
