Chess in NYCNo, we're not talking about the G-Star thing on the 10th. This is about Channel Thirteen in New York who interviewed the founder and owner of NYC Chess, Russ Makofsky, for its weekly series, “New York on the Clock.” The channel thought we might be interested in sharing the short video with our audience, and... why not.

The video shows Russ Makofsky, a life-long chess player who teaches children and adults the basics and finer points of the Royal Game for Chess NYC in the heart of New York's chess community, Greenwich Village. Although the name Makofsky won't share the renown of Kasparov, Fischer, or Spassky, Russ says you don't have to be a Grandmaster to make your mark as a great teacher.

At some point Russ gets a bit over-excited, expressing exaggerations like "New York is the most famous chess city" and "all the US Grandmasters live in New York," but we'll forgive him. :-)
