Watch Chess Grandmaster Maurice Ashley Beat a Trash Talking Cheater in Washington Square Park

Chess grandmaster Maurice Ashley became the first African-American international grandmaster back in 1999, and has since been named Grandmaster of the Year, written successful chess books, used chess as a tool for motivational speaking and strategy, and now, beat a Washington Square cheater fair-and-square.

I was schooled by the best hustlers back in the day!
