Three move checkmate - chess can be a dangerous game

Nearly a year ago, there was a bizarre and  grotesque murder not too far from us.  Two guys were playing chess and, it seems, an argument over a move ensued which resulted in the killing of one of the players.

Subsequent reports disclosed some especially disturbing details about the killing which you can read here, if you have the stomach for it

Obviously this guy was very seriously deranged, and shouldn't have been out at all...  never mind playing chess.   But when you consider the rather stuffy image of the game, it's difficult to reconcile a row over which way the knight moves (or some such) ending up in a horrible bloodbath.

Myself,  I think I will stick to Grand Theft Auto... just in case.

@ DC3. Yes we certainly do. This one raised it up by a few notches, alright.
