Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-06-22  offramp: A training tournament is a high-quality tournament with zero awards and zero prizes.

Attendance is MANDATORY.

In the 1950s the politburo liked to go there. It is on the Black Sea, and near to Sochi.

Moscow is only a short hop flight to Gagra, it's 7 hours. Outside toilets.

You go for the Khash, but you'll stay for the Khash.
