This morning I checked the FIDE website to get updated on the latest news coming out of the World Youth Championship 2009 in Turkey, when under the headline of day two activities I cam across this picture of one of Mexico's upcoming players - asleep on the board.
Under the picture, the FIDE staff writer wrote, "IT IS SIESTA TIME FOR OUR MEXICAN GUEST." (www.wycc2009.tsf.or.tr,) I was curious to know the game's result and against who he had played with.
He drew a russian with black.
Imagine what the player could have done if he had stayed awake?
