I don't see you guys rating the kind of mate I'm contemplating

One night in Bangkok Calcutta makes the hard guys humble.

A leading French chess player turned up drunk and dozed off after just 11 moves in an international tournament in Kolkata, losing the round on technical grounds, domestic media reported Friday.
"Technical grounds" means that he fell asleep at the table and his clock ran out. He later protested because his opponent had fourteen giant pink rooks that floated off the chessboard and circled the room in defiance of the rules of chess.
