It's hard to say how irresponsible
15 Qxe7? is actually, but Miles

<Tony Miles, with a bad back, played a major tournament Tillburg 1985 laying flat on his stomach on a massage table.

The result: Huebner, a nervous ball of nerves who couldn’t stand these eccentricities, went nuts. Another result: Miles won the tournament!

“When he returned to Tilburg in 1985 he finished first equal with Huebner and Korchnoi with 8.5/14 in the Category 15 event. He injured his back during the event and the organisers allowed him to play stretched out on his stomach on a hospital massage table. This annoyed some of his opponents a great deal who protested. He did the double over Korchnoi (who he had never beaten before) and Ljubojevic during the event.”>
