Watch Chess Grandmaster Magnus Carlsen Play the Hustlers in Washington Square Park

Chess grandmaster and World Champion Magnus Carlsen was in New York City and decided to play a few games against the hustlers in Washing Square Park.

A new viral video shows 25-year-old Norwegian chess grandmaster Magnus Carlsen leaving the famous Marshall Chess Club in New York City, and deciding to take a stroll over to Washington Square Park, where he walks straight up to the best players and destroys them in about 10 moves.

For some reason, actress Liv Tyler was there too. Check out Carlsen’s webpage to learn more about the grandmaster.
