World Chess Championship Toiletgate


General Culture

The world of professional chess has always been very entertaining because of its mix of genius (as far as chess is concerned that is) and widely spread social ineptitude. World chess championships have been particularly good venues to see the most erratic and absurd behaviour, even though since the fall of the Iron Curtain things have become a bit boring. No more Xraying of chairs, no more yoghurts of predetermined colours at predetermined times - oh, the good old days! But don’t despaire! The current championship gives you - I kid you not! - Toiletgate. See here for the complaint that started it all and here and here for updates.
