A chess game murder, apparently.
Or just a chess murder, on your mobile.
This murder? Apparently there was "a row over a game of chess".
Well, no. In fact what happened is that the players didn't quarrel at all. A third person came in and tipped over the board and subsequently killed one of the players.
- is that the man who was murdered was playing chess just before he was killed.
What was the actual cause of the dispute? Why did it lead first to someone throwing a chessboard about and then to violence and murder?
We don't know. We're not told. All we know is that there's not a single word to say that chess was the cause of anything.
This isn't actually a "chess game murder" at all, is it?
Homicides - a one-time student of criminology writes - are very often associated with alcohol consumption. I suspect that has a lot more to do with what happened than chess does.
More "face of evil"?
