For many years I coached our high school chess team. We played our matches on Tuesdays and Thursdays through the winter. During one particularly tough winter, several of our matches were postponed due to weather, and we rescheduled the best we could. But we were forced to travel an hour away on a Friday night to make up one of them.
We were ALL on the bus--no absences--and I thanked them profusely for giving up their Friday night to come out and make up a match. One of my top boards said, "Don't sweat it. We're the chess team. Where else were we going to go?"
One word: Capablanca
Are you kidding? My best pick-up line is, "How about a game of chess?" Try it. You'll be thanking me later.
Of all the things that men do to occupy their time, chess has got to be the worse thing in terms of picking up on women. I mean, you can lift weights, learn to dance, learn to cook and all these things will lead to meeting women and possibly dating them but chess is an exercise in futility in terms of getting women. My question is: how do we make chess more friendly to picking up on the ladies? HAHA..I mean, what can you say to a woman "hey baby, I"m quite good with my bishop" with a nefarious grin on your face? any tips?
Just be yourself dude. Women knows a BS compliment from a real one.
good comments guys...I think its a funny topic! I've noticed that sometimes women frequent chesss clubs if they wish to find a smart kind of guy!
You got that right on the spot dude!
try strip chess.
and repeat the fried liver attack over and over again....lol
but to answer your question.....NO....and if that's on your mind chess progression is doubtful!!!
Good one, kenible.
Are those the type of "chicks" that go to chess clubs?
I like blondes!
Well if you share a hobby, it can perhaps be nice, but I doubt it.
playing at a tournament, put your number on a sticky note, then put the stichy note on the clock next time you hit it and wink.
what about telling a woman "hey baby, I want to fork your whole family" LOL...better hope she's down with chess lingo huh?
My pawn is fly on g6. This thread is calling for pickup lines.
Not to be recommended: references to smothered mate, skewer attacks or porn sacrifices. "Can I buy you a Falkbeer?" is sometimes successful.
