Maybe we should ask Roger to include a Chess guide as well just in case.

At $151K I'd suggest dropping the guide request and ask instead for a few days of professional tutoring, say with Judit Polgár, I'd guess she could reveal the importance of not losing your queen

Idk about photography, she's the only female to have beaten the top 9 chess masters in the world, I'm guessing her ability to visualize is pretty keen She's not to bad on the eyes either...model doubtful...have only seen her at a chess board, not on a runway?!

Chess geek from high school, coder/geek now, just follow the chess world a bit, must keep the mind active, it's of import to feed both sides of the brain

Chess Humor...

In a park people come across a man playing chess against a dog.
They are astonished and say:

"What a clever dog!"

The man protests:

"No, no, he isn't that clever. I'm leading by three games to one!"

I played chess big time, training almost the whole week and even got some good trophies some time ago, Judith's genius is sometimes beyond believe.

Sometimes she seems to have her game set for the next 12 to 15 moves and multiple variables, ready for everything.

For the record, I can hardly go further than 4 to 6 movements and 3 to 4 attack variables and my brain goes belly up if this goes further than 2 hours. Stress kicks in and affects your behavior and you start missing the right clues.

Very serious stuff.

So based on me you all feel like geniusses. I played chess a coupple of times against my brother (about 40 years ago maybe). Even today I am still not able to plan (and remember my planing) for more than 2 moves. Usually my first thought in the morning is "... what was it again ... ah, yes ... BREETH! ... Ralph ..."

But I would love to get this T-Shirt! When again was it when the special offer is over ... ?

Ralph, I think we've got one or two of those "Let Biogons be Biogons" T-shirts left. That's a couple of years old now and the new owners don't really get my geeky humor so they haven't made another run of those. I'll see if I can get one to you if you pm me your address.

David, I like the bowling idea. . . .

PM on its way - I will whear it proudly and with respect.
For all others, who dream about supporting a photographer in need (even if I would prefere a 6D I will no say "no" to a 5D III or 1D X): You can find my adress on the contact page of my web site.

In eager expectation
Ralph

Roger, let us know if the T-shirts are still available. I, for one, would love to have one and even pay.

The T-shirts are a funny thing. When it became obvious Lensrentals was far too large for me to run, the terms of the sale included that I retain complete control of testing, quality control, and the blog. If I had known they were going to ax my T-shirts I'd have added that into the terms of the sale

The Biogons and Size Does Matter T-shirts are still on file at the printers, so if a few people want either one I'll get them to print a run. Since they have our name on them, they get charged to marketing, but I'd have to charge you for shipping.

No mention on the cost of insurance for the chess set. Do you think your insurance company would believe the "Dog ate it". Need to know before rental.

Sounds like a re-run of Don Zeck's caps for the EF 200/1.8L!

Sign me up! I'll take one "size matters" hoodie and two "Biogons", XXL.
