The video showed the two young men stripped of their clothes and wearing only woolen hats, and the Canadians also used an ice raft to support the chessboard which turned out to be thick enough to support the weight of the board and the pieces.
The two men expressed their satisfaction in the match, which lasted for five minutes, according to what they recalled: “We plan to do that at some point.”
