A group of adventurous lads will stop at nothing for a thrill and played a game of extreme chess - in a FREEZING COLD lake. Jamie Kamaz, Rhys Simmons and Thomas Michaelides were inspired by the intro of 'Queens Gambit' on Netflix and travelled to the coldest lake in the UK.
The trio filmed themselves at LLyn Y Fan in Carmarthenshire, South Wales, as they engaged in a battle not only of wits, but human endurance. They managed to tolerate the freezing water for 20 minutes - just enough time to complete on game.
This video was filmed on the 8th May 2021.
