Check Mate With A Right Hook



At the Dome, Tufnell Park, just up the road from me, Chess Boxing nights have really taken off. It’s exactly what it sounds like, and for the best report see the Guardian’s (sadly embed-protected) video piece…
INTERVIEWER; ‘Do chess and boxing have any compatible elements?’
PUNTER: (Thinking) ‘No.’
I’m looking forward to Ludo-Tightrope nights and of course, Poker-Speed Sculpture.
