Chess - while you wait! Super photo!

Chess news and chess trivia blog (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2010

Hello Everyone,

Here is an interesting chess photo that has 'travelled' across the Internet at amazing speed in the last 48 hours. It's all over the place. Surely, nothing could better capture the mood of the season.

Morris Farimi, 70, of Philadelphia, waits for a challenger in a game of chess after finding out his flight to Germany had been canceled at Newark Liberty International Airport, Sunday, Dec. 26, 2010, in Newark, Pa. Airlines are working to rebook stranded passengers and possibly add flights after a winter storm on the East Coast caused thousands of flight cancellations and left countless passengers stranded.

But this photo also reminds us of drivers playing chess during a traffic jam stretching more than 60 miles in China in August this year. The traffic jam since August 14 on the National Expressway 110, which is also known as the G110, the major route from Beijing to Zhangjiakou, had lasted more than nine days! Too bad couldn't find photos of that!
