Nothing strange about that. There is, however, something extremely strange about the second part of the item.
This is - amazingly - an advert for a Ray Keene event, in support of his personal charity-cum-dining society*. On the website of the English Chess Federation.
As readers probably don't need reminding, Ray Keene is not a member of the Federation. He has not been a member of the organisation for two decades. This is because he was obliged to leave the Federation when he was accused of defrauding that organisation of a sizeable sum of money.
Ray Keene has never made any proper explanation of his actions. Nor has he returned the money.
So tell me - what other organisation would be dozy enough to offer free advertising to an individual who had left them in such murky and discreditable circumstances?
None that I can think of.
Is Phil Ehr able to offer us an explanation?
