    I can only play after a drink, actually two.  I'm too intimidated by the thought of playing when I'm absolutely sober.

    Loved the end stories.

    Leonid Stein is 'unknown' only to people who know nothing about Chess history. In the 1960's he won 3 Soviet Championships in 5 years and numerous strong international events. He was prevented from advancing in the candidates cycle 3 times by the stupid rule that allowed only 3 players from one nation to qualify. He had winning records against Tal, Spassky and Keres and equal scores against Botvinnik, Petrosian and Smyslov. How many 'unknown' players could do that? He was still at about his peak when he died at the tragically early age of 38, maybe thats why he isn't as well known as he should be in the west, he's a legendary figure in the old Soviet territories!
