Apr-15-17  sneaky pete: I found some historical pictures of the recent Biographers Board Meeting.

On the first picture we see, from left to right, Susan Polgar, Wesley So, his PR Adviser and Daniel Freeman. Polgar is missing on the next picture. On the third picture Freeman has mysteriously disappeared. But I'm sure we all love the last picture the best.

Andrew Soltis - Chess Lists p. 95-96:

'Stalin's Brilliancy'

One final game of dubious provenance that has been reprinted is an alleged encounter between Joseph Stalin and the man he would later name to head the Soviet secret police during the purges of 1936-1938.

Stalin vs Jeschow, 1926 (white Joseph Stalin, black Nikolai Yezhov)

But there is no other evidence of Stalin's interest in chess-and certainly nothing to explain his skill in this game. So Stalin-Yezhov is almost certainly another hoax.
