like to play a street pro!!  a real chess hustler, someone who plays for money.  summer in the city, people playing chess on the street, others watching and lots of yelling and encouragement.  dunno how it works, never played that form of chess before.  does it go on in new york city because never seen it in london or paris?  how much would it cost to win or lose?  if money is on the line, it makes a difference, must be very tense.  is this not true?  the best chess player some old guy or woman in new york, who plays day in day out?  could the world chess champion cut it as a street pro?
