  MissScarlett: <Muggers stole $700 from Alexander Yermolinsky, the top player for the U.S. team. The thieves threatened to kill him if he did not return the next day with $70,000, although they did not follow up on it.>

<But perhaps the worst incident involved GM Alex Yermolinsky. His presence in the city as part of the US team did not go unnoticed by his ex-wife, who lived in Moscow at the time. She telephoned him and asked to see him, so an unsuspecting Yermolinsky set off across town one evening, to the apartment she had specified. When he got there, he was greeted by several thugs, hired for the purpose, who beat him up and then sent him on his way, with a demand for $10,000 in cash before the end of the tournament. A battered and bruised Yermolinsky spent the rest of the Olympiad holed up in his hotel room, too terrified to set foot outside the Cosmos. >

Not quite the action he was expecting.
