Chess Introduces a Cleavage Rule

March 17, 2012 in Daily Bulletin

The ECU recently instituted a dress code for chess tournaments. Anastasiya Karlovich went over some of the highlights of the new policy:

  • The “cleavage rule” states that the second from the top button may be open.
  • Miniskirts are no longer allowed.
  • The people behind the rule point out that all sports have uniforms and chess was just joining those ranks. The problem was that people were showing up to tournaments in beach-wear.
  • Hats are also no longer allowed.
