So you can recognize chess players' faces or moves, but can you recognize their hands? Take a shot in this photo contest by Besty Dynako. The six best answers by USCF members received by Tuesday, January 20, Noon EST will get a one-year World Chess Live membership. (If you are a USCF member and haven't redeemed your six free months, upon winning you can get a total of 18-months.)

Contest Instructions

Submit your answers to [email protected] with the subject line being "Hands Contest" by Noon EST, January 20.
