Chess Hustler meets a grandmaster

A New-Yorker’s hustling, trash-talking, and cheating way of playing chess apparently didn’t work against a grandmaster.

Watch the video below to see how it went:

GM Maurice Ashley on his note in the Youtube page:

I was schooled by the best hustlers back in the day! This was actually in Washington Square Park where the late great Vinnie Livermore used to beat my ass at that same table! (This is a bonus clip from The Tim Ferriss Experiment TV show. Watch the full series here: http://fourhourworkweek.com/tv/)
