“Dude, someone started a Reddit forum about your Instagram chess photo.”

More messages started coming in, and that sick feeling in the stomach started to kick in. What the hell have I done now!

“Queen on’er own color Webb!”, said my friend Nick, co-founder of Zocdoc, a great chess player.

Then I looked at the photo in question which had started to break down in tears like a CIA detainee being tortured endlessly at an obscure black site in the Middle East.
