English Chess & the Little Englander mentality

They say that one definition of idiocy is to keep repeating the same behaviour, achieving the same negative results.   4 times more than qualifies for this honour. Neto, Kok, Karpov, and now Kasparov have all lost by 2:1 margins. It has never been close. Coincidentally the number 4 also represents t...

Neto, Kok and Karpov all played to those Rules, and were soundl...
