Chess In Portland – Part II

A couple of posts back I noted that Portland enjoys chess and showed a large set. This image is of a normal sized set in a public area, with a rather intense game in progress. This was one of three games in the same area and was probably a five minute game (a game where each player has five minutes to make all of their moves – go beyond that limit and the game is forfeit). The pressure is not only in the game itself, but also playing in front of a number of people intently watching the moves. In this game the black pieces prevailed in a well played game, with scattered applause at the end.
