Chess Boxing Day

Continuing my seasonal levity here’s a game for Boxing Day. It must of course be a chess boxing encounter.

I’m still struggling to understand what happened at the end, presumably it was some kind of loss on time. And although part of me would like to make some kind of condescending remark about the chess I have to admit that chess boxing is giving our game a lot of publicity.

I should note by the way that I don’t recommend getting punched in the head multiple times for the aspiring chess player. So if you’re looking to get some physical exercise then stick to swimming or cycling, both are easy on the joints and like other aerobic exercise have well documented benefits for the brain.
