Free beer!

Ah, the usual responses. I, too, enjoy the free-flowing alcohol that is standard at USCF tournaments, as well as the hordes of gorgeous women who find chess-playing incredibly attractive.

For the money, of course! All those idiots playing Texas Hold-em are missing out on this embarassment of riches to be found in chess.

"Hey, baby...I just got the latest version of Fritz. Wanna come back to my place and analyze?"

(Oh, yeah, I forgot to mention the abundant prize funds just waiting to be claimed by hard-working chess players that are in demand. Thanks BDK.)
