Funny stuff.

Nov-28-06  tino72: Reminiscent of a story from a former Irish champion:

Eamonn Keogh

(You can find an audio recording of this at Mark Orr's Irish Chess Archive.)

"I'll tell you a funny story. I was once asked to present the prizes at the community games out in Ballyfermot in Dublin and as part of the day's activities I gave a simultaneous against all the kids who'd won a prize. I saw a pretty queen sacrifice on one of the boards and played the move. Then, when I came round again, this red haired freckled eight year old swiped my queen and called over his mates who clustered round the board. Next time around I made a quiet pawn move and the kid was showing the captured queen to all his mates. The next time around I said check, and the next time around I said mate. He looked up and his face was bright red and he said "Well **** ya mister!" from the depth of his heart"

Nov-28-06  Autoreparaturwerkbau: <tino72> Thanks, that's a nice story. It seems that chess can always offer a few of those, doesn't it? :)
