crikey! Sally Landau looks just my mum!

i mean if i was a human, she would have.

i might consider Tal to be my favorite player now. i always preferred Bobby on account of him being a chess playing version of Johnny Rotten who taught me a lot good stuff about life in general.

still though, neither of them have the philosophy of ilikeflags.

Well even johnny has his hugging days

Alekhine was rarely an embracement but when he was, it was with his cat.  There is a rumor that his last embracement was a piece of steak down his throat  ...

It is unclear if there was any embracement here though capa was known to be a ladies man. 

we can only infer from results that there were other embracements  ...

but then a kiss is not a kiss with capablanca ...

Alekhine's cat wasn't even looking at the chessboard 😊

alekhine had tuna stashed under his left collar to make it seem like the cat was staring at him, and throw off his opponents.  a tactician to the very end.

max fell prey to nausea in the championship and renamed himself "euwe" right after that, as he never could get rid off that stench.

No sir, you most definitely misspelled embracement.

I just love Ella Fitzgerald and puns.

Looks like the bunny missed out good ole spassky.   Not much embracement with his wife here ...

but at kramnik's wedding, his warmth was felt

Sadly couldn't find any embracement pics of lasker, steinitz, Morphy or anderssen.  Perhaps it was the age of tough men don't hug.  Or perhaps our resident historian @batgirl could kindly help.
