This is what happens when a New York street hustler faces a chess Grandmaster.

There are two things you need to know about Maurice Ashley. First of all, he is one of the nicest persons you might ever meet. The second is that he is a Grandmaster.

He took a trip to New York City’s Washington Square Park. A chess hustler there didn’t recognize him and challenged him to a game. That was mistake number one.

Mistake number two was that he tried to distract GM Ashley, who was up to par in banter.

Mistake number three occurred when the hustler tried to cheat at one point.

Mistake number four was not recognizing or congratulating GM Ashley on his win.

It should not be hard to figure out who the hustler and GM are. Even if you never play chess.
