come from all over the world and weren't happy about this at all so they
started drinking and abusing each other! One said "Igerloft you're a joke,
you can't play chess for s**t! I'm the greatest player in the world and I'm
gonna whip your German ass with the board!" And Igerloft got wound up at
this and barked back "Vy you American Bavooon, you vould shtill be playing
me zis time next year and you vould not have beaten me! I am ze greatest
player in ze World!".
"God" I said "That's terrible, people behaving like that to each other at
Christmas time!"(...Irtrad relevance?)
"Yeah" he said "It was chess nuts boasting in an open foyer."
