    First Mobile Phone Violation

    I claim to be the first person to be kicked out of the chess hall due to mobile phone violations. My phone rang twice at the comp held at St Barnabas Hall, off Broadway in about 1996. Charles Zworstine showed me the door. Can anyone beat that?

    I did a really cool high five with a friend of mine...yep that wins.
    And still, no one has satisfactorily proven, that it isn't opposite day.

    did you have two people who wanted to talk to you or was it the same person twice.

    It's important to me.

    Your phone rang twice but Charles only kicked you out once. Consider yourself lucky

    It was the same crazy nagging person - I hope that means something. Someone I am related to - so they must be crazy.

    I will now claim my place in the history of aust chess - the first person to be kicked out due to phone violations. I am proud to be a historic person.
