"Are all chess players machos ?"

An interesting interview of Levon Aronian in Chessbase news !

His answer : "As a chess player one has to be able to control one’s feelings, one has to be as cold as a machine. We men do not let ourselves be, let us say, seduced by our emotions and feelings. But there is a paradox in chess. - Which is? - The paradox is that the best chess players are the most emotional ones."

"A gentleman at the board can suddenly turn into a barbarian. Like Anand."

Re: Are female chess players 'macho?'

Eureka!!! I think I've got it....I've solved a great, longstanding mystery! The aforementioned strong, 'macho' female chess players were actually MEN in WOMENS' DISGUISE! Whoa!!!!!

You are almost there - actually all male GMs are women in disguise :)

Re almost there..

I think Normajean is right, I have never seen published a photo of a naked GM.
