Extreme Blitz Chess December 6, 2010

Posted by Jennifer in : chess , trackback

Check out the video, Extreme Blitz Chess, which I helped produce and first published on Chess Life Online. The video features my brother International Master (IM) Greg Shahade and IM Robert Hungaski. The editing and directing is by Daniel Meirom. Greg, Daniel and I are teaming up for another chess promotion video project early in 2011, which will involve talented young American masters facing off in an exciting format. If you want to know more and get involved by volunteering or sponsoring the production with a tax-deductible gift, please contact me.

Good fun, nicely done video, great music. Re the latter, could you tell us the performer/title?

The bickering during and after the match cracks me up.

Apologies again for off-topic posting, but I recently read the chapter from your book in which you discussed chess romances, and you referenced a couple of erotic chess movie scenes. I didn’t see Austin Powers or the other one, but this is easily the most erotic chess scene I’ve seen in a movie, between Steve McQueen and Faye Dunaway in the original Thomas Crown Affair. Probably if you’d seen it prior to your book you would have made reference to it.

I can’t tell if the game itself is “real” in that it would be one likely to be played by two good players.
