    Ok, who had the idea of holding a civilized international event in a location ruled by a medieval theocracy? I understand chess has become obsolete because of AI, but Iran? Did they have to go that low?

      Well, to be fair, the Persians did refine the game many centuries ago!

      It's chess. It's about medieval theocracy. It came from medieval theocracy, spread through medieval theocracies, and if we're honest about what we mean by 'medieval' and 'theocracy' then maybe it's no more obsolete now than Go or sheer exhaustion after a hard day's work.
