How to win at chess: ‘I can’t stop smiling’: Russian chess grandmaster says he can’t quit after losing his first game
A Russian chess player has become the first man to lose his first match after losing to a gay player on a grandmaster tournament.
In his first professional game against Ivan Mihailovich Krasny, the 35-year-old played his first chess game on his own and took advantage of the fact that the young Russian has a gay friend to play with him.
The man said in a YouTube video that he felt like a “loser” in the game, adding that he had not played a professional game before and was not sure if he would ever win.
Krasny played with the gay friend in a game of chess, after the player was shown the move “I can stop smiling” by the gay player’s boyfriend.
The gay player said that Krasnys move was a mistake.
He added that he was so upset by the loss that he left the game.
“The gay guy left the match because he felt I was a loser.
And he was not right,” Krasnov said in the video.
The first gay grandmaster in Russia has won his first major tournament and his first round of the grandmaster title.
