A major international chess tournament has been rocked after the sudden death of two players.

The two players died within hours of each other on the final day of competition.

Kurt Meier, a Swiss-born member of the Seychelles team suffered a heart attack while a member of the  Uzbekistan team was found dead in his hotel room.

Both of the deaths were due to natural causes.

The deaths has raised the issue about the dangers of the sport.  Australian chess champion Ian Rogers, was forced to retire from the sport in 2007, after he was warned by his doctors that the stress of top-level competition was causing him serious health problems.

for some reason the second death in the hotel room makes me wonder?!?!
I play chess at school and no one gets angry or upset which would make them have health problems. I love chess atually! the only problem is that I play it non-stop! Maybe I should tone it down a bit
