Potsdam Photograph - 1945

While political events overshadowed the impromtu RPS match at the Potsdam conference, this is the only remaining photograph which shows the "three-way stalemate". While the players seem to be enjoying themselves, no less than 30 international judges were present for the match. The five who are visible in the background of this photograph were all responsible for scanning the audience and press pool for those looking to illegally "assist" in the match.
