Leontxo García has news for us!
Apparently chess has about six hundred million followers around the world.
It doesn't, of course.
This isn't the first time Leontxo's facts and figures have been at variance with reality.
Come to that, it's not the first time Leontxo's put about this particular figure.
Last time he did, and was advised by the present writer that the facts were otherwise, he promised to do some research.
Busy man, Leonxto García. Very busy man.
