Modern Chess

I would like to present a game for your enjoyment. If you are the kind of person who enjoys watching a train wreck this game is for you. One of the participants in the game that follows was, at one time, a World Champion, back in the day when there were only a few Champions of the World, such as the World Champion; the Women’s WC; and the Junior WC. Today it is impossible to count the number of “World Champions” as there are World Champs in many age divisions, often separated into male and female WC’s in each division. Play over the game while trying not to “bust a gut” laughing at some of the ridiculous moves played.
