Here's some good news for chess fans this Christmas season: it appears that Viktor "The Terrible" Korchnoi is resuming his chess career. According to Chessdom (HT: Brian Gaines), he will be playing in the 37th Zurich Christmas Open from December 26-30. (The "Day After Christmas Open"?) Korchnoi suffered a stroke about a year ago, and it was thought that the (now) 82-year-old's competitive career was at an end. So to all of you who grew up with Korchnoi as a strong or even elite GM - and that's just about everyone between the ages of five and 75 - be heartened and inspired that the great warrior of the chessboard will fight on.
