Chess is more important than freedom

Who knew prison was so much fun?
BUNDABERG, AUSTRALIA - A man in Australia has won a three-week extension of his prison stay after begging a judge to keep him behind bars long enough to ... start up a chess club.... Taking the time he had already served into account, the judge was about to free him when Campbell spoke up to ask for more jail time. The judge obliged with an extra three weeks to ... make sure his friends behind bars could enjoy the chess club he was in the middle of setting up.
