A grandmaster, who had been slated,
To play, dozed off inebriated.
Though much did they shake him,
Yet no one could wake him,
So they had to declare him -- checkmated.
Reuters 04/09/09: A leading French chess player turned up drunk and dozed off after just 11 moves in an international tournament in Kolkata, losing the round on technical grounds, domestic media reported Friday. Get the details here
So the master was matedReplyDelete
and Aparna has threaded
a limerick out of it!
But what was the reason
of the Frenchman's chagrin
was it plain bangla,
or plainer tharra
or that, mixed with hash and gin!
Excellent ones ... BTW, I don't see updates in your Bangla blog these days. You can write in other Bangla blogging platforms too - such as one in coffeehouseradda.com.ReplyDelete
we seldom find chess so boringReplyDelete
when grandmasters come a-touring
but he moved his pawn
after a drunken yawn
and proceeded to the finish while snoring!
lols ... must have made an interesting set of moves :PReplyDelete
