  Phony Benoni: So that's why FIDE refused Botvinnik a rematch.
Jul-10-14  rapidcitychess: Bottvinik plays from beyond the grave. (Yes, I know it's not the same one.)
Jul-11-14  ughaibu: Then again, Petrosian plays from beyond the grave too!

But of course i was wrong.

  Fusilli: And this was in the Under-16 Olympiads, confirming, as I suspected, that your age clock resets to zero when you die.

  Phony Benoni: That was before the Fischer Clock. Now, you get 5-second increments for all eternity.
Dec-11-14  NBAFan: "Botvinnik vs Petrosian 1998, is that possible?"
"What?????? Are you out of your mind????? They were both dead long before then!"

  hoodrobin: Your age clock resets to zero <and> you get 5-second increments when you lose on time (as per last LIFE rules).

<And this was in the Under-16 Olympiads, confirming, as I suspected, that your age clock resets to zero when you die.>

In case of Petrosian it actually kind of fits. This Petrosian was born 35 days after the world champion died.
