One, out of four articles published at www.chessbase.com on 1st April 2012 is a hoax, an April fool joke, a chessbase tradition...but the big question here is which one?
1.European Championship: Jakovenko is champion with last round victory
This is real since it is also reported at other chess site.
2.Capablanca's Chess + Billiards match
Never heard of this but that beautiful game...an evidence..50-50 chances it's hoax. Lets evaluate others.
3.The 'Let's Check' Crystal Ball
I know Fritz has this ability and i don't think Chessbase is going to trick or make fun of something that they sell..open to sue...ok, this is real.
4.Chess Match of the Century table up for sale
I think i have heard about this table few years back...i think this one is April Fool's article...:)
Chessbase, my final answer is..Chess Match of the Century table up for sale is this year April Fool's joke!
Ok, now lets wait for the result...:)
