    Default Never miss a chance to insult someone

    GM N. Short: "Congratulations to Fabiano Caruana on the first victory in the Berlin Candidates. The Lord deserted Wesley So today. Apparently, he didn't pray fervently enough."

    GM Wesley So is a devout Christian who prays before every match. See the article linked to below for more info.

    Grandmaster under fire after mocking chess player's prayer


    update: GM Short posted on GM Susan Polgar's Facebook page and, surprise surprise, stirred up a hornet's nest. I follow Polgar's F/b page, and found myself in an exchange of pleasantries with him. To be completely fair to GM Short, I had no idea that "So" many people make fun of his name and borrow the expression used by Kasparov in new and (lol) creative ways. [I have to confess I did the same here on CT when I remarked that in Kirsan's litigation "the defendant would be Short and his face would be long".]

    I'm happy to report that I've now been insulted by one of the best chess players.

    Dogs will bark, but the caravan of chess moves on.
