Chess is a game that demands immense precision and accuracy. Despite the strategy involved, it is full of spontaneous decisions and an instant approach to the opponent’s moves.

The game requires silence, concentration, and thought to make a strategical play. Any person in attendance has to be extremely quiet and must not distract the players. However, for some, that is easier said than done.

At a recent event, a Norwegian chess reporter ended up creating a mess. Not only was he loud enough to distract the players, but he also accidentally hit one of them with the elbow.

How the Norwegian chess reporter broke the silence at an event

Notably, chess is not the easiest game, as it demands strategizing, intuition, and creativity. But more than that, to ace a match, one must have a strong pattern recognition ability.

A silent environment is what chess enthusiasts need for better concentration. Recently, a Norwegian chess reporter created immense chaos at an event, elbowing chess players and bumping into them.

Levy Rozman, a popular International Master, and commentator posted this video on Twitter.

The Norwegian chess journalist elbowed a player in the head and we expect better questions?!” he captioned the video.

Being careless and over-excited, the reporter even elbowed a female player in the head. Apologizing to her, he continued recording and dropped his ear pod too.

Fans react

A photographer who was present at the same event also fell victim to the reckless reporter. He mentioned how the reporter bumped into almost anybody, including him.

He is terrible, I’m a photographer there and he is bumping into everyone (me included). He is also way too loud,” twitted the photographer.

Another netizen tweeted asking if the reporter was intoxicated. Notably, the photographer denied the allegations, stating it was just his careless behavior.

Wouldn’t go that far, but he is too careless for a chess event IMO,” the photographer wrote.

While his excitement was understandable, everyone present at an event is obligated to follow the rules and regulations in place. What are your thoughts about this?
