Those of you who are over 50, like me, probably remember watching reruns of an old black and white TV game show called "You Bet Your Life" starring Groucho Marx. (The show actually ran during the 1950s, before I was born, but it was telecast via reruns well into the 1970s, when I was a kid.)Many of you may also recognize the name Isaac Kashdan, who was an American chess grandmaster and chess writer. Kashdan was one of the world's best players in the late 1920s and early 1930s.Below is a clip from "You Bet Your Life" where Issac Kashdan is a contenstant on the show. (His partner happens to be the mother of actor Tony Curtis, one of the most popular actors of the 1950s.)http://archive.org/details/youBetYourLife1956-SecretWordDoorIn the clip Kashdan challenges Groucho to a chess game, and offers to play him blindfolded.The above clip will probably only be entertaining to you if you remember the show, or if you are a "chess historian," and wish to see what Kashdan looked and sounded like.
Very nice. I like how he goes describing a game, like anybody is going to understand what is going on.
my mind is blown that any chess player could be below a 1300
