Smoking actually increases chess performance. Tal , Alekhine and other greats of the past are proof.

I would have also smoked, but my body is too weak to handle it.

But he didn´t play dumbly. Are you hard of understanding?

i understand perfectly well what is important to focus on in this conversation... imagine how much better a player of tal's caliber would have performed had he NOT inundated his body with poisonous chemicals & cut his life short with the same. 🙂
