  wordfunph: Adams-Korchnoi Enghien les Bains 2003:

In the morning before this game was played Korchnoi took his habitual walk. Two young men in jogging suits had completely different intentions. When they came up to him, they snatched his purse and went off. Korchnoi gave chase immediately but the boys increased their speed and after some 100 meters Korchnoi had to give up. "I don't think they will be happy when they find out there were only 28 Euros in there." Korchnoi observed.
