Apparently a couple of  "movie actors" want to play chess in the 2013 Ulster Championship, according to the Ballynafiegh website.

Overseas readers should  note it is not a big deal for "movie stars" to  be in N.Ireland, they make movies here continually so nobody is very impressed when they see any of these characters.

The Ulster Championship usually takes place in the Europa Hotel in August.  I cannot really see the UCU changing the rules to let a couple of "actors" take part, can you?  After all, "actors" spend their lives appearing to be what they are not, they are the experts at "deception."  Potential candidates for chess cheating I would  have thought?

Nevertheless here is as video clip of the Ulster Chess Championship from 2011 staged in the Europa Hotel, it will give you a flavour of the annual event.  I have to apologize for the shaky camera at the start, I had only just got the thing and was learning how to work it.

UPDATE, I have just informed Nuala McKeever about this, she was talking about some guy called George Clooney a few weeks ago.

Matt 24:4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.
