A group of chess enthusiasts checked into a hotel for a big chess convention. The chess players were standing in the center of the lobby, gathered in a large circle, discussing their recent tournament victories. After about an hour, the hotel manager came out of the office and asked them to disperse.
“But why?”, they asked, as they moved away from the center of the lobby.
“Because,”‘ the hotel manager said ‘”I can’t stand chess nuts boasting in an open foyer.”
