The Linares tournament . . . yet another reason to be jealous of Spain.

By the way... which wine do you think is the best to better swallow the ’poisoned pawn’ variation in the Sicilian Najdorf....
Hum.... perhaps a ’full-throtle’ red... like Clos Mogador :^D.
Anyone who accepts the poisoned pawn should automatically be served a wine contaminated with brettanomyces.
I’ve just remembered that Berberana produces an export label under the name ";dragon"; :^(
If you want something more in the nature of jet fuel, there is also Turley Dragon Zinfandel.
... but I’m enjoying it very much!
I was thinking what to drink with the Falkbeer countergambit, and the King’s Indian.... . Les Sorts Vinyes Velles in the first case and the AN/2 in the second?
How about the Queen’s gambit? is some champagne required?
Of course the Ruy Lopez.... a complex Fino (Tio Pepe, perhaps) to go deep into all the lines :^D
And finally he Catalan Opening... I see it matching with the Mas d’En Compte Blanc perfectly!
At one point in time, one of the strongest chess player in the world was a man who was literaly born in in Chateau Latour and worked as a wine merchant. Who was he?
Hint: Although it was before formal ";world championships"; in chess, Howard Staunton’s victory over this player generally established Stanuton as the best player of the time.
