Episode 58 - HALLOWEEN II - The Chess Game From Beyond the Vale

Welcome to KRAKEN COVE, episode 58, and another Halloween special!

This is a shorter show, but hopefully still a tantalising treat! Benny is out searching for ghost stories so I'm joined by a much loved friend of the show, Deep Dive Dave!

Dave researches and discusses a superb case, a chess game specially arranged between Russian grandmaster Viktor Korchnoi and Hungarian grandmaster Geza Maroczy. The twist? Geza Maroczy had been dead for 34 years!

Listen to Dave's gripping narrative of these turn of events at the podcast that ALWAYS shines a Beacon onto the Bizarre, Kraken Cove!!!!

Remember, if you have a strange story of your own, please get in touch! Send it to in either written or recorded form and it might get on the show and be in with a chance of winning a copy of Damnable Tales by Richard Wells!
