There are probably tons more.

Hot women players who are good at chess is probably why most men prefer World of Warcraft or Tic-tac-toe or whatever they play in their mom's basement.

My first thought was comment on why they always make it the woman's fault. Then I read the article (usual Farker order of precedence) and found it to be rational discussion. with the actual facts of the matter (the rules) right there for us to read. Newspapers take note.

They even mention body odor.

The 2012 European Individual Women Chess Championship in Gaziantep became the first tournament where the ECU Regulations on Dress Code became available. Here are excerpts:

13.2 Dress rules for the players during the games
In general, players are required to follow the code of casual dressing which means:

- for men dress trousers or jeans, a long-sleeve or shirt-sleeve dress shirt, alternatively T-shirt or polo, loafers or dressy slip-ons, socks, shoes or sneakers (no beach-wear slips, etc.) and, if appropriate, a sport coat or blazer. The trousers, the jeans as well as the shirts and polo's worn should be crisp and show no excessive wear, no holes and shall be free of body odor.
- for women blouses, turtleneck, T-shirts or polo's, trousers, jeans or slacks, skirts, dresses, and appropriate footwear (boots, flats, mid-heel or high-heel shoes, sneakers with sock) or any other appropriate clothing modification.
- a jacket, vest or sweater, a scarf, as well as jewelry (earrings, necklace, etc.) coordinated to the outfit may be worn.
- the pieces of the clothing should be crisp, show no excessive wear, no holes and shall be free of body odor.
- in respect to shirts, the second from the top button may also be opened in addition to the very top button.
- sunglasses, glasses, neck ties can be worn during the games, no caps or hats, except for religious reasons.
- in general, this category of appearance demands a pulled-together, harmonious, complete look with colors, fabrics, shoes, and accessories, for both men and women.
- national costumes which fit into the generally accepted dress code and are not offensive or indecent to others can be worn

13.3 Dress rules for the winning players or the winning teams during prize-giving ceremonies

- the rules set for these events are valid for a player or any member of a team, including the captain and the delegation chief who is rewarded by a prize in the chess event and thus he/she appears and receives the award in front of the other players and the audience
- such a person shall follow the dress code of business casual (or by another name elegant casual) which means long trousers, shirt, jacket, with or without tie (no t-shirts, no polo, no jeans, no sports shoes or sneakers or slippers, no hats or caps -except for religious reasons-) and the equivalent style of dress for the women players.
- national costumes which are not offensive or indecent to others may be worn.
- it is recommended that teams should be uniformly dressed even if a team uniform is not available.
- a special set of rules is established for the European Individual Championship award ceremonies where the dress code is informal which means a suit with tie, appropriate shoes and the equivalent style of dress for the women player. National costume may be worn in the event.

13.5 Tournament Officials will have the right to give official warning to any player not properly attired. The first warning will be a verbal one. When a player is a member of a team, his/her captain will also be informed. The second time a player will be in breach with the Dress Code he/she will receive a second warning. This warning will be confirmed to the player in writing the same day. When a player is a member of a team, his/her captain will receive a copy of this warning the same day. The player received the written warning will present him/herself to the tournament officials, if it is a team player accompanied by the captain, one hour before the start of the next round. If a player is then still in breach of the Dress Code he/she can be send back to dress appropriately. If he/she does not cooperate, he/she will be denied access to the playing area.

13.6 A player not dressed according to the Code can be refused to attend the opening or closing ceremony. Spectators not properly attired will have to leave the playing area.

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOORRRRRRRRRRRRIIIIIIIIIIII IIIIIIIIINNNNNNNNGGGGG!


What you should do is either have all nude speed chess (Translation $$$$) or more socially acceptable costumed chess. Wear whatever you want and try to use it to distract you opponent as much as your actual strategy.

Who wouldn't want to see Napoleon playing against the Terminator with severe face damage on the table next to Darth Vader and a cave man?

Is it not allowed to dress up as batman then? That'd be more distracting to a wider selection of people.

I see this as a drawn game. As distracting as bewbs are, is having them stared at by unattractive, undesirable chess nerds any less annoying, and thereby, distracting for a female chess player?

The proper counter to bountiful cleavage is obvious, even exaggerated, ogling.

OK, the hot boobs were nice but let us evaluate positions.

Because People in power are Stupid
Pic #1 looks like a bad position for white. Why is her king in the middle of the board?
Pic #2 appears to be a classic opening. Black might get a draw at best.

I think white has the dominant position.

Two_Noodles:
Looks like a wild game. The queens and the kings are all over the board.

I'm terrible at Chess, but I like playing. I once had a game with a pretty good player that should have stomped me right away. I don't know how I did it, but I took my King all the way across the board (at that point I was on borrowed time anyway). With 2 rows to go, he felt he needed to remind me that the King is not an offensive piece. Hell yea he was, just that once.

I am SOOOOO glad that someone else did this before I could ever pretend to look at the positions.

I remember the woman with the weird Brooklyn accent who read off the chess moves for Spassky/Fischer

it's not, she's castled and there's a knight between the king and the camera

a sicilian, white has much better development

yes, hard to tell with the eastern european pieces but white is either up a minor or is about to promote a pawn

yeah, hard to tell from the angle, might have to set up a board and see
