Chess Images

Frequently enough, I encounter images featuring chess that I like. Here is a recent find:

But frankly, I have no idea how to make a good blog post out of them.

Caption competition? Guess the players? Just present the image, gallerifically? Any suggestions welcome. Normal service resumed tomorrow.

Antony! Really! I don't think Mrs S will be too happy at having been mistaken for Mrs T.

Do I detect psychological tactics from Antony - ahead of his forthoming clash with Andrew, in the Watford Chess Club Championships?

Vladimir Nabokov, author of The Defense (a.k.a. The Luzhin Defense) and composer of chess problems, playing his wife in a game.

No kid psychology from me, honestly!
But I still lost to Andrew on time after an epic encounter :-)
