I took a short break from the World Championship fiasco today to take part in an exhibition with 3-time US Champion GM Lev Alburt at Central Park. It is organized by Mr. Ed Feldman from the NY City Parks Department with the assistance from Chess in the Schools.
The NY City Parks Commissioner was on hand to welcome everyone. More than 500 players took part in the tournament and there were thousands of spectators. The mainstream media was on hand to cover this event, including the Russian media. This is truly a wonderful event to promote chess in NY and I am proud to be a part of it. I will write more about it later.
