This month’s fun photo comes from a game of chess played underwater in Curacao by Dutch grandmaster Hans Bohm vs. Robin Swinkels.
Though it is April 1st and last month’s fun photo was a gag, this one is not a joke. We looked up the two players on FIDE and found that Hans has a rating of 2306 and Robin has a rating of 2494. Some additional digging turned up two You Tube videos.
The first one is the actual coverage of this match.
The second one we found shows a one minute bullet match on a TV shows between Hans and Magnus Carlsen.
I can’t speak to the live commentary on this video as I only know a little French. Even so, it’s still very entertaining!
