    They sell cars with tits and ass, so why not wine!

    Chess makes you dance! Whether you win or lose.
  • Chess or Fucking
    No this is not philosophy! 'Chess or Fucking' is the name of a porno-film. I love the combination of 'cigar' , 'chess' and 'sex' themes all in one. I haven't seen the film yet, but I doubt if it will improve your opening skills! (Otherwise ChessBase would sell it as a DVD in their 'improve your game' series!) Note that the board is set up properly. http://flyflv.com/movies/15565/chess_or_fucking

    The End. Like a good Shakespearean play, a Greek tragedy. ... I think the point is made.

    A great photo! Actually from a porno film, but it is precious! The guy is losing strip CHESS. No wonder, the bottle is empty, and the banana did not help.
  • mph_g190_002
    Also part of a porno film. But I love the opening. Does it have a name? What do you think about the idea of making porno-stars have a minimum Elo of , say atleast 1800, so that they SEEM to be trying?!
