Local (michigan) chess player makes news


I found this interesting article about Gregory E. Bailey, a very strong player from the Michigan area. Here is the article:




I especially like the part where the article goes to describe Mr. Bailey and his childhood chess passions and his progress to the master title. Also, it is interesting to see that chess is compared to selling insurance. Two things you really would never think of comparing! If you really think about it though, chess can really be compared to a lot of things. Finally the last part of the article goes into talking about class and race barriers. I really like the point the article makes about chess being able to break these barriers down and eliminate discrimination.
