An Irish game had the distinction of featuring as one of the ChessBase puzzles this week, with fanciful title to match: the reader had to determine the consequences of 27. … Bxg2 in the diagrammed position. See Oliver Reeh’s article for the specific question and the solution.
Earlier in the week there was another Irish appearance on the broader chess stage, when Pete Morriss’ questions were featured in Geurt Gijssen’s column at ChessCafe.com: How should an arbiter dress?. The article title is prompted by one of Pete’s questions, apparently prompted by an incident at a recent international tournament he participated in. (The solution, of course, is to reprimand the complainers and dock them two minutes for wasting everyone’s time.)
