The Corpse of Mikhail Tal

Oct 14, 03:15 PM

This week Jon tries to host a dinner party, Chris wonders what Magnus Carlsen will do next, and Phil gets angry with FIDE... again.

The sorry tale of Isa Kasimi dominates proceedings this week, despite Jon's protests, but what can be done about game integrity when the world governing body doesn't seem to care? In more cheerful news, the guys cover the stalemate rule, try to fix the perfect dinner party, and discuss streaking.
