More of the same

To go with yesterday's piece, here's something from John Naughton's Guardian/Observer* review of Garry Kasparov's new book.

Donner said of Prins that he "cannot tell a knight from a bishop". I wonder - would a book about tennis be reviewed by somebody who didn't know the difference between a game and a match?

[* Guardian website, but as it appeared on a Sunday I'm assuming it was the Observer in print.]

Yes, I noticed that slip - but John is thought-provoking and well worth reading.

Sure. Would have been nice had it been corrected, though. But it's not important.

What was this about though?

In contrast to standard tournament practice, for example, IBM did not provide a private “team room” where he could consult with his seconds.
