Well, there goes that GoDaddy.com-sponsored chess tournament. Gawker noticed that the European Chess Union has issued new rules for how women should dress during tournaments, which means they'd best keep their "décolletés" -- fancy talk for "boobs" -- covered up. From now on, female players can only unbutton the top two buttons of their shirts. The new dress code also requires both genders to wear "a pulled together, harmonious, complete look with colors, fabrics, shoes and accessories." The ECU's Sava Stoisavljevic told Chessbase, "I think it's good that we have started to do something with dress code, and it's very important for the image of chess."
Yes! Finally chess players will shake the stereotype that they're scandalous dressers.
