Check out Jamal Abdul-Alim’s new article at the USCF website which features a visit to the World Chess Table in New Orleans:
Moving onto a taste of France in America: If you should ever find yourself in the French Quarter, be sure to visit the “World Chess Table” on Decatur St.
That’s what I did during a recent trip to the Big Easy.
I didn’t want anything to do with the palm readers and the folksy art held no appeal. But the local artists pretty much all know where the lone chess table is in the vicinity.
It belongs to U.S. Chess Master Jude Acers.
