Since chess players can't get dates...

...cennydd loves the Sveshnikov Sicilian:
I love the Sveshnikov since there is absolutely no reason it should work. It's ugly, it contravenes so many of the obvious principles of chess openings. But somehow it works - it's aggressive, it irritates the opponents; a bit like Wimbledon's plastic pitch from the 80s really.
