Chess is against people and in support of imperialist dictatorship!

A game where king, queens and other high power establishment has strong moves while "average" soldiers are limited to sacrifice themself for this lordship.
Not only that, this brave troopers are insulted and humiliated by being called pawns!

Anyone who plays chess is a servant of reptilian illuminati.....

Chess is a spawn of Satan and therefore Evil.....

Sorry Octavius but as the MoC sponsored the event the prize money needs to go to an Irish Citizen

Chess is a dull and boring game with limited rules making it 'opening' wars. I no longer enjoy it.

I offer to double the prize pool for this tournament.

I'd like to join as a eCanadian citizen and if I win i'd like the money used to buy Q7 tanks for the Irish populace.
