The Chess Game Was A Drag

"At the World Chess Cup, which is being held in Khanty Mansiysk, Russia, two top Chinese grandmasters, Wang Yue and Li Chao, showed up late for tie-breaker games in their third-round matches because they had been smoking. Under new World Chess Federation rules, they had to forfeit."
The money quote comes at the end of the NYT article:
"Asked if he would now give up the habit, Wang said: “I don’t think so. After such a shock, you only think to take a long smoke.”
You show 'em, Wang!
