Today I want to stretch your tired brains
Tell me who I'm talking about here:
He was a good friend of World Chess Champion Emanual Lasker. In an interview with the New York Times in 1936 he said, “I do not play any games. There is no time for it. When I get through work I don’t want anything which requires the working of the mind.”. He did take up chess in his later life.
Good luck, and 100 Cubits awaits the winner!
