Honestly I started this thread because it makes me giggle at those of you who take this game so seriously. Chess and Drinking go together because they are both forms of entertainment! I play better sober , but honestly if I want to have 1 or two (or ten) beers during a game who are you to judge?
It is a game... and for 99% of us on this site, it is not our profession . many of you treat the game of chess as a sacared game, it may be to you..but to me it is a game I love to play....how I want to play it.
