Hope you will enjoy it together with good games in 2017
Some really terrible Xmas Chess jokes for you :
(1) A chess master died - after a few days, a friend of his heard a voice; it was him!
"What's it like, where you are now," he asked.
"What do you want to hear first, the good news or the bad news."
"Tell me the good news first."
"Well, it's really heaven here. There are tournaments and blitz sessions going on all the time and Morphy, Alekhine, Lasker, Tal, Capablanca, Botvinnik, they're all here, and you can play them."
"Fantastic!" the friend said, "and what is the bad news?"
"You have Black against Capablanca on Saturday."
(2) Frasier: I can see why she likes the game - "the king is stationary, the queen has all the power".
(3) Two friends meet by the street:
F1 - My wife says that if tomorrow I go to the chess match, she will take the children and leave me.
F2 - So, what is your plan for tomorrow?
F1 - E4, as always!
(4) Two chess players are playing a correspondence game. White lives at the South Pole. Black lives at the North Pole. The postal service is rather slow and play proceeds at the rate of one move per year. After 15 years of play, white makes a daring queen sacrifice, the consequences of which are by no means clear. A year later, as he sees the postman returning, he is very excited. He thinks “Will black take my queen ?”, “Is the sacrifice sound ?”. He tears open the reply and sees “Jadoube”.
We hope you have nice jokes in your Christmas crackers. And we hope you have thoroughly enjoyed yourself this year, and we wish you the best in enjoyment and happiness for the remainder of this year and the future!
