Habrá quien considere el ajedrez un deporte muy serio, pero incluso durante una competición tan importante como el #Candidatos2022 las redes de la @FIDE_chess demuestran tener un fino sentido del humor. De todos modos, bienvenido sea todo lo que abunde en todavía mayor difusión👍🏻 https://t.co/hWSRhhijiD

It'd be nice that the torch traveled around the world, and even nicer to see it in #Sitges, venue of the last @FIDE_chess World Women's Team Championship. Just giving an idea! 😄 Anyway, it's a great initiative by @advorkovich and his team to give Chess more photo opportunities! https://t.co/r7erIztdqE
