I love chess! Never thought I would see the day when bodybuilding and chess merge together, even if only for an instant Cheesy

Actually, there's a quote by John Hotten in his book "Muscle" which actually links chess and bodybuilding. I can't remember the quote exactly, but it referred to a position in chess called "zugzwang" a German word which means you will lose whatever move you make. John Hotten compared it to the death of Andreas Munzer, who was basically screwed by going down the path of experimenting with so many bodybuilding drugs.
