I WAS one of the Greatest Chess Players of All Time...
I was briefly imprisoned in a Soviet "death prison cell" after I was accused of being a spy. I married in 1920 and got divorced in 1921.
I became a French citizen.
I was the Chess Champion of the World.
I died in my hotel room while planning for a World Championship match. Some say it was due to a heart attack, others say that I choked on a piece of meat. Still others say that my death was due to "the long hand of Moscow". But I'll never tell.
Who am I?
...It's not me.
Hey...don't look at me...I'm still alive!!!
We give up...WHO IS IT!!!!!
