Daily Chess, in Bryant Park

Chess, Bryant Park
Photo by myself in Bryant Park, at 42nd Street and Sixth Avenue.

What looks like an intense battle of killer chess was actually a good-natured game between acquaintances.

I was truly surprised by how friendly and light-hearted the crowd at Bryant Park was. People seemed to know each other and were having a good time. The instructor told me that the same players convene every day during the summer months.

Below, a rapid fire game, where each player had three minutes on the clock. At one point, it was a flurry of hands.

They really do play there? I played chess online since 1996. I am pretty good at 15 minute games.
