    Hmm...what is the very best chess book on the planet that is only available in Russian? That would give the Russians an unfair advantage.

    I doubt that it will give you a 100+ point rating boost. I don't really see how it helps you in chess.

    It's a great psychological weapon; I've had numerous games where my opponent was scared to death when he heard me speaking Russian before the round.
