"I have a chess tournament tomorrow can you help me with the strategy to win the game?"
When an Indian fan of Garry Kasparov on Monday asked him about the strategy to win a chess tournament, the former world chess champion replied in just three words: "Stay Off Twitter."
While social media sites have become an integral part of our lives, the Russian chess star thinks staying away from Twitter is the best strategy to win a tournament.
Kasparov, also a writer and political activist, is considered as the greatest chess player of all time.
Backing the grandmaster’s advice, many of his followers also twitted saying: "As Brilliant Answer as he is."
Another follower tweeted saying, "Yep. That's good advice for anyone who needs to accomplish an important goal.
