The Lure of Limelight!

Former world chess champion Garry Kasparov has taken the bait to get back from retirement possibly to garner some attention.

I doubt it is a prudent decision unless he is ready to dent the reputation he has as one of the greatest chess players ever. His comeback notwithstanding, he can never upstage late Fischer who, to me, will remain the finest player the chess world has seen.

Moreover, these are times when current and former world champions Magnus Carlsen and Vishwanathan Anand do not hesitate to draw games through repetitive moves.
