It was something about watching 6 guys huddled around a chess board arguing at 9pm on one of those winter nights where it was randomly spring for a day. The two men at the table obsessed over the strategies in play right before their eyes but it was the obervers who where the real show. Hyping up moves, boasting about their bets, and just laughing when one of the players made a move that almost put his opponent in check.
The image stayed with me long after I had come and gone from my destination around Dupont Circle that night. So much so that I reseearched the DC chess scene and found out about the legend of Tom Murphy.
