while playing a tournament todayi noticed that one of my opponents had a globe instead of a national flag can any one explain this to me are they a "international" team player ?
did your opponent accepted your gambit?
if so,i think he's Korchnoi :))
Erik (once) wrote: it means they don't want to say where they are from and have chosen to be one with the universe :)
There is no flag for The Other Side of the Moon :)
my teammate/classmate/good friend is on this site and he has one of those flags, so my guess is that people can choose what flag they want set to?
I noticed a couple of people with North Korea flags and I find it hard to believe that anyone from North Korea would be on this site.
Why say this ?
YES GET IT NOW , Korchnoi was stateless after leaving Russia so had no flag , and having searched i have found the Korchnoi team who use the globe as thier symbal.
In a few years from now everbody will play either 1.d4 or 1. c4
