Olympics postponed until 2021. Why did it take them this long to do so?

Some called for the tournament to be played online, but that was a non-starter: the classical chess community is traditionalist, and the in-person encounter is considered an integral part of the game...


Yeah, I enjoy playing Chess online with friends, but you could never play these kinds of tournaments online. Never happening. Everyone knows baseball is considered old-school in its norms and traditions, but the Chess community is even more old-school by comparison.

Eh, I'm not going to debate whether chess is or isn't a sport...

It's a challenging game/hobby/profession and easy to learn, but incredibly hard to master. It also requires a crazy amount of stamina and mental endurance at the top levels of play.

Cut him some slack. He's down a pawn in the end game.

Edit:. Do not cut him any slack. That draw offer was straight garbage.
