This past summer, Jennifer and Irina played a 2 two game
match at a Chelsea art gallery in New York City. Irina wore a white
Betty Boop wig with a white gown. Jennifer wore a black Betty Boop wig
with a black gown. The two former US Woman's Champions fought it out
in two rapid match games. Both games were decisive and the
match was drawn.
This was a great example of Art performing Art. Chess is
science, art and sport combined. I have always felt that the
best way to promote this game is to make it part of an intellectual
meal. I would like to see more Live Piece chess matches at a minor
league ball park. You open up with a concert and then have a live
piece chess match and close with a scientific discussion about the
universe. Both Chess and the Universe have something in common, they are
both infinite. Chess will be around until the electrons stop spinning.
