What happens if your opponent dies at the chessboard ?

    If my opponent was someone I hated, I would celebrate if he died at the board. [/honesty] Remember we are all trying to "kill" one another over the chess board, isn't that right?

    Well, what happens with the prize if a dead man (died in last round) wins a tournament? See, that is an interesting question.

    I think this thread, and the death jokes enclosed, should hereby end out of respect for the two players who passed recently during the Olympiad in Tromsø, Norway.

    I hope you used a thesaurus to bash him with. When I was younger I was able to string together a variety of four letter words. The education system isn't even giving young folk a good grasp of profane language these days...

    Seriously though. Death is something the living have to handle. As a chess player I wouldn't wish for a better way to exit this life than during my favourite hobby.

    Perhaps you're right. Let's hope our two late bretheren departed this world in peace. However, both were of advanced age. Perhaps the stress of the game was too much. If so, FIDE needs to implement changes so that history will not repeat itself as it so often does if the world forgets the past.

    We all have to go some day. Whether young or old, in health or sickness, awake or asleep, or in joy or sorrow. It is always important to not only live well, but to remember the ones that departed and to cherish those memories.

    Not really. Lot of legal precedence for legal heirs to fight over his money. What happens to the prize money in such circumstances is no longer under the jurisdiction of FIDE, but the legal system of the country in which the incident occured and any will left by the departed.

    So "Patience" eventually won the game on time? Innocent

    Yes, "Patience" is a dish best served cold. "Revenge" is a poor half-sibling.SurprisedWinkCool
