Check out this episode, mate! This week’s gambit involves Romanian stand-up comedian and chess enthusiast Radu Isac joining us to discuss the world’s worst chess grandmaster. We blitz our way through various aspects of the game’s history, from its multiple weird adaptations to those players who cheated using everything from phones to sleight-of-hand, and there is even an appearance by our old friend The Mechanical Turk.
