This man is very worried. He is playing against those pigeons and they have just played a killer move
I know exactly where this is...in Amsterdam near our favorite Wagamama! Very cool, Astrid.
Reflexion oblige ...les echecs un jeu passionnant !

LOL at Chris. Playing chess in public would show just how rubbish I am at the game. We used to play it in every break when working for BT many, many years ago.

he looks that worried because he lost his queen Astrid....petersmile

A wise professor seems to be presiding over the game...
