Reminds me of the time I went to the chess party with I guess user_inactiveted now.

Bunch of chess geniuses playing 4 people rotating speed chess, and the losers take a shot of vodka. Some of those guys were completely plastered, and I still didn't stand a chance against anyone. Looked like fun!

That's what you get for playing in a room with (IIRC) four professional chess masters. ;)

Though, mind-altering substances don't seem to affect my chess skills either. One of my 'best ever' games happened while I was still woozy from dental surgery. I can't fully recall how I got there, it's a bit fuzzy how I got back from the tournament and yet I can remember most of the games I played.
