When Politics Is Just Too Wimpy For You

Nikolay Sazhin almost knocked out his opponent with a blow to the chin
in the second round. But he had to take the queen to win the match.

In front of 1,000 cheering fans one recent Saturday night, Sazhin
moved his bishop to go in for the kill and won the world championship of chess
, a weird hybrid sport that combines as many as five rounds of pugilism
with a game of chess.

It sounds a little bit like fizzbin. Doesn't it?
