    I know I'm way late on this, but just saw some videos on utube of "chess-boxing". to me, very very hot. cerebral guys alternate 3 min rounds of chess with 3 min rounds of boxing, no breaks, go immediately from 1 to the other. winner is by k/o, checkmate, or if those don't happen, who has more time left on the chess timer. anyone know where to see this in the us? seems very popular in Germany, uk, Russia, etc. thoughts. thanks. mark

    I had never heard of this but was able to find a few videos about it on YouTube:

    thanks for the post! I would say it is definitely more of a European thing than American--I found a lot of posts on utube, and there seemed to have been some matches in Richmond, va, in 2009, and there's a guy trying to organize a club in la, but otherwise, not many here have fallen for it. I plan to keep looking.
