I am amazed that the following topics were never brought up: 1) Maurice Ashley is the first man of African decent to become a Grandmaster in the entire world! 2) Alicia Ashley, his sister, was the world boxing champion 3) Devon Ashley, his brother, was the world kickboxing champion To say that Maurice Ashley comes from a family of overachievers is the understatement of this young century! Not bat for a Jamaican immigrant that got to the US only after his 12th birthday. Maurice Ashley is a wonderful chess commentator. I have watched countless tournaments with him as one of the commentators. He is always making very inciteful and witty remarks. He is also a successful book writer and has been the organizer of the "Millionaire Chess Open" tournament which has had 3 instalments.

In 1999 he earned the grandmaster title (GM), making him the first black person to attain the title of grandmaster. Ashley is well known as a commentator for high-profile chess events. He also spent many years teaching chess. On April 13, 2016, Ashley was inducted into the US Chess Hall of Fame. Maurice's sister is world boxing champion Alicia Ashley and his brother is former world kickboxing champion Devon Ashley.

Here are some verifiable facts on the election fraud that just occurred in 2020: there are 212 million registered voters in the United States; 66.2% of those registered voters cast ballots in the 2020 election (per WashingtonPost) which equals 140.34 million people voting in 2020; Trump received 74 million votes; that leaves 66.3 million votes for Biden....So how did Biden get 81 million votes? That's IMPOSSIBLE!!
Jacob Potischman
Jacob Potischman 18 dagar sedan
@Jack Jones I’m not going to read a 270 page report from someone’s Google Drive. Send me a verifiable link to an official website with this “data,” and I’ll look at it. CISA and the DOJ both said the election was free, fair, and secure. And again, you not liking Biden has nothing to do with whether there was fraud. Again, not even Trump’s OWN LAWYERS are making these claims. Why are you so desperate to buy this bullshit?
Jack Jones
Jack Jones 18 dagar sedan
@Jacob Potischman I left you a link to a 270 page report from a governmental branch that will serves as the basis to question the election's integrity, although you are very aware of the election fraud (unless you are a tinfoil hat wearing moron).... The SCOTUS wants nothing to do with the presidential election. Biden is a segregationist who wrote the "Super Predator" laws aimed at minorities. Biden has an extensive history of corruption and using Institutionalized Oppression and Systematic Racism against THE PEOPLE!
Jacob Potischman
Jacob Potischman 18 dagar sedan
@Jack Jones Genius, you can't use "there is no way he got more votes than Trump" as evidence that he didn't get more votes than Trump. That's meaningless circular logic. I hate Trump with a fiery passion and don't understand how anyone can like him. Does that mean I can declare that he didn't get dozens of millions of votes? Secondly, how come Trump's own lawyers are making vastly smaller claims than Trump himself in court? Maybe because they're under oath in court? And how come he's lost 60 of 61 court cases, mostly under conservative judges, many of which are Trump-appointed, including three SCOTUS justices who, along with the rest of the court, stated unanimously that there was no basis for the lawsuit. Take a hint.
Jack Jones
Jack Jones 18 dagar sedan
@Jacob Potischman That all would work out fine and well if it weren't for the fact that Biden has the appeal of horse excrement, even people who actually voted for him do not really like him, and there is no way he got more votes than Trump, Obama or any other candidate in history. Also, we have many accounts of election fraud running the gamut of all ways possible to commit fraud. The link below is the 270 page report released this weekend by the Trump legal team that spells out the facts on election fraud. Please take your time and observe all itemized findings and respond with your rebuttal-

And the WP article specifically says 66.2% of VOTING-ELIGIBLE POPULATION. There are 255,000,000 people of voting age. 66.3% of that is 165,750,000 people. Knock off ten million felons and undocumenteds, and the math checks out. How are you so bad at this?

For some reason, I liked the original show much more than the social distancing show. The interviews felt more engaging and insightful, and call me crazy, but it also seems like Trevor was funnier? Maybe it's the inability to do crowd work. You also don't have those spur of the moment things like Trevor commenting on Maurice's arms.

I credit Trevor for having GM Maurice Ashley on at all, even if it is rebroadcast here just as a reaction to the popularity of The Queen's Gambit. I wish that Trevor been more serious at the beginning instead of pandering to the audience for laughs, but Ashley handled it well. In the U.S. chess community, Ashley is well known as a commentator, specializing in bridging the gap between computer engine evaluations and real over-the-board play, and his background and title give him plenty of street cred (there's a great video of him out-hustling a street chess hustler in NYC). He's not a world-class competitor, but I think he's okay with that. He interviews world-class players and those interviews can be pretty fun.
