    Axiom,

    Can you please tell us about that time when you were coming home from Chess Tiger training school and you were viciously attacked by chess thugs?

    Thanks,

    ok, firstly,..you have to recognise, Krasnoyarsk in the 1950s,was a very different place,it is difficult for us to imagine from our perspective today.

    just to clarify , is it the particular incidence of the chess thug attack, that you are interested in? if so i talked briefly about it in the KCC thread...i dont think there is of much significance that i can add to that particular episode.....it was not an uncommon event, amongst rival chess groups(gangs) of the time. ....the stress and emotions ran high ,during the intense camp study programs,and often spilled out onto the streets.

    the major groups were of course , the siberian chess tigers, and also, red knights, the sicilian group, the LGR(LAB GAMBIT RATS), KGB based group,the black wolf, BG5, Daggers, White fox, and many other specialist based groups

    there was great competition between groups,to supply the latest theory to the best in moscow,,,it was common for kgb, to infiltrate these groups,much espionage and counter espionage.

    i would be happy to field any questions you may have

    siberian chess tigers were accused by the red knights of studying banned lines!..which of course we were!

    the red knights had been infiltrated by members of black wolf(a branch of kgb, dedicated to keeping chess on the "soviet path")

    after hard day of chess training, and walking home with fellow members, we were accosted on the street,..but thankfully ,the martial art training we all recieved at the camp,saved us..........we had to be constantly aware of potential clashes with rival groups


    it was our ultra secret workings on the chess opening theory black arts,that saw us constantly under siege.

    in my next post i will reveal one of these secrets....never yet published anywhere in the west!

    Axiom, I want to hear what you have to say.

    Michael, be quiet and you may learn something.
    So what's your excuse? For running like the devil's chasing you?

    See you in another life, brotha.

    He might have little knowledge of these times, but I agree with his definiton (that the the story is full of you know what)

    Being Russian, I share Igor's and Michael's scepticism. I think Axiom has been watching too much Walker, Texas Ranger meets Steven Segal.in Siberia.

    You guys should lighten up and either enjoy or ignore the storytelling.

    Whether you believe it or not is up to you - but let the stories be told and let others enjoy them if that want to.

    Oh, they are very entertaining and have provided me with a good laugh. But why pass them off as truth if they are not? Anyway, I won't make any more comments and let others enjoy them.

    Trappistnight, were you in Siberia with Axiom or have just heard the highlights form him?

    I'm with you, Sunshine.

    I had a creative writing tutor who was fond of saying, "You are writers, you have a licence to tell lies." Not that I would ever embroider the truth myself, of course...

    But the stories have been entertaining although I confess that in a less forgiving person they might beggar the belief, just a teensy bit.

    But I loved White Elephant's "Walker Texas Ranger meets Steven Sea Gull in Siberia." Don't stop Mr Jumbo, you're adding to the enjoyment.

    Maybe we could have one of those forum stories where everyone posts an extra line to keep the story going. Where were we again....blue wolves, red cossacks, yellow knights....

    Next installment: Axiom reveals that 'Mikhail Baron' was actually once part of the Lab Gambit Rats and will do anything to silence the renegade siberian chess tiger by utilising his KGB connections. He elucidates it is vital that the secret possum variations not be revealed outside of Russia, as Garry Kasparov is in the middle of studying deep lines up to move 37 in order to make a comeback.

    Never let the truth get in the way of a good story - let him go and encourage him.

    Anyone here from the John Kellner Rockdale Police Boys Club of the 70s ?

    Now the stories from there make the Krasnoyark Chess Camps look like a summer holiday.
