Some interesting notes to take from chess history

Gambit with candles and talk at the board

The tricks in chess have been known for a long time. Back in the 15th century, the Spanish grandmaster Juan Ramirez Lusen advised to seat his partner in a way so that the candle light interfered with him. According to him, this will ensure a quick victory.

Another technique directly prohibited FIDE, – talking at the board. However, even in modern history there are examples where chess players could not keep their mouths shut. In 1967, Eduard Guffeld in a party with Nikolai Krogius constantly reminded him to consider the moves. Such tactics brought Gufeld victory.

You can shoot down an opponent in other, completely legal ways, for example, constantly offer an aggressive opponent a draw. Often you can interfere with your competitor completely unintentionally. So, many chess players, for example Tigran Petrosyan, in moments of excitement sorted their feet under the table. This habit at one of the tournaments freaked out the famous « evil chess player » – four-time champion of the USSR Viktor Korky. He asked the judge to intervene, but he ignored his request. Then Korkhoe had to put things in order under the « table with his own feet ».
