Just in time before it’s all over, here’s a WC trivia question for you. Name another World Championship match in which the players represented countries with a common border (yes, Norway and Russia have a shared border, if you look closely at a map).
As always, Mark ‘Trivia King’ Crowther came up with a couple of good answers in no time at all. Can you do as well?
Yes, Lasker-Schlechter is an obvious (if ancient) one.
Alekhine-Euwe is also correct, as Alekhine was a French citizen by the time of the match. James, would you like to explain why France and the Netherlands have a shared border, for the benefit of those readers who are aware of the existence of Belgium?
