When a Washington Square Park chess hustler sat down with a random opponent, the trash talk began. The hustler was no doubt an expert chess player, but he didn’t realize who he was playing.
Throughout the match, the hustler kept talking trash and the match progressed quite quickly. The opponent however, finally sealed the hustlers fate with a few smooth moves and the match ended with the hustler losing.
The two shook hands, exchanged names and that is when the hustler realized who he had just played. Grand Master chess player Maurice Ashley. The hustler could not believe it and was quite honored to have been beaten by one of the very best chess players in the world.
Chess is such an amazing game and those who master the game are certainly a special kind of awesome!
