RomiKarpov vs RomiKasparov

Post by Michael Sherwin » Thu Dec 28, 2017 4:08 pm

Since the RomiFischer vs RomiKarpov match for the title was so popular, 546 views, I thought that I would now have RomiKasparov challenge RomiKarpov for the title. I reserve the right to stop the match if Karpov looks as though he is in trouble and restart it.

Edit: The match will be the first to win 6 games, draws not counting.

Karpov 2 Kasparov 2
If you are on a sidewalk and the covid goes beep beep
Just step aside or you might have a bit of heat
Covid covid runs through the town all day
Can the people ever change their ways
Sherwin the covid's after you
Sherwin if it catches you you're through
