    STOCKHOLM – A major international chess tournament in northern Norway has ended on a grim note, with one player dying in the middle of a game and another found dead in a hotel room.

    Organizers say a 67-year-old member of the Seychelles team collapsed and died during the final round Thursday of the Chess Olympiad in Tromsoe.

    Tournament spokesman Jarle Heitmann says another player, from Uzbekistan, was found dead in a hotel room later Thursday.

    That's why we need to drug screen these chess players

    They are hopped up on all sorts of stuff

    which they use to help give them the edge
