The best thing about spending time with these old timers is the stories they tell you. Last night I once again had the good fortune of having a few drinks with 1976 Australian Chess Champion, Serge Rubanraut. The year after his fine victory in Australia, Serge flew to England to play in the world famous Hastings tournament. Guess what those poms did to slow down our man?
They sent him women! That's right, women. Unbelievable. Bloody poms!
