True Story

Mihail Talj and Paul Keres were in the middle of a tough game of chess at a Bled tournament. Talj sacrificed a piece and the sacrifice seemed very promising. Keres became deeply pensive and while thinking he became hot and took off his jacket. He found the right defence and won the game. After the game the grandmasters sat down to give an analysis of the game and when they came to the critical point Talj said: You know Paul, I have foreseen all your moves, the only one I did not take into account was that you might take off your jacket.
