THIS KIND OF THING USED TO BE RESERVED FOR AFTER THE SEALED MOVE.

Oops.  (I saw some wag referring to Michael Corleone making better use of the loo.)
Georgian champion Gaioz Nigalidze was expelled from the Dubai Open on Saturday after his opponent Tigran Petrosian, became suspicious about the amount of times he nipped to the lavatory.
This is a different Tigran Petrosian from the world champion who crossed the final summit on 13 August 1984.

With miniature devices, it may already be the case that somewhere a player has a transmitter concealed in his reading glasses.
