A defection in Thessalonka, an attempt at Ping-Pong style diplomacy in Dubai, KGB blackmailing of a chess official in Moscow, and a terror stricken KGB Colonel in Merano are constant reminders of how corrupt governments attempt to lose international sports for selfish political gain. Against this background and a seemingly never ending stream of anecdotal encounters with players & officials, chessdon gives the reader and insight into the world of chess. The Gold, The Bad and The Ugly.
