Maurice Ashley takes on New York City Chess Hustler

AhPhoey

      GM Maurice Ashley, with a camera filming on the side, took on an unsuspecting chess hustler years back.   After getting thoroughly handled, the hustler did a quick slight of the hand cheating trick and thought he could get two pieces in one move.  Maurice said "Nay".

       Most have probably seen this, but for those who haven't, enjoy!
